Come watch the whales on the largest and most comfortable vessel two times daily from Sydney Harbour Circular Quay and Darling Harbour. Whale watching is a great winter experience, come join us for a great day out on the ocean with the whales!
New Years Eve on Sydney harbour is the best place to avoid the crowds and enjoy the best of the fireworks and all the night has to offer. Join us as we cruise around the harbour in the Parade of Lights or anchor in a prime position on the Harbour.
The Smartcard is similar in dimensions to any credit or debit card that you have in your wallet
The Smartcard is your 'ticket' to Manly Fast Ferries and can be 'topped up' as many times as you like
A Smartcard can be started off with as little as $50, or as much as $500, and any credit balance on the Smartcard do not expire
The Smartcard is 'swiped' on one of the Manly Fast Ferry ticket machines each time you want to travel and the value of the current ride is deducted from the balance on the card
The Smartcard operates as a 'Purse': you load cash value onto the card and then each time you travel the appropriate value is deducted
The 'Purse' styled Smartcard is far more efficient than the older Travel 10 styled card, and offers the commuter extra discounts on fares if flexible with their time of travel
The Smartcard can also be used to purchase across the bar on board our vessels
What happens if I lose my Smartcard?
If you are registered with Manly Fast Ferries then we will be able to cancel the lost Smartcard and replace it for you, normally with a full refund of the balance remaining on the lost card
If you're not registered and have a receipt from either the Smartcard purchase or a recent 'Purse' top-up on the card, we should be able to locate and cancel the lost Smartcard. If the card is able to be located we can replace it for you, normally with a full refund of the balance remaining on the lost card
If you have neither of the above we will use our best endeavours to track down you lost Smartcard but give no guarantee that we will be able to refund any outstanding balance of the card
How do I register my Smartcard with Manly Fast Ferries?
Simply send an email to us with:
Your mobile phone no
Your email address (if different to the current email)
Your Smartcard No (8 digit no on the reverse of the Smartcard)
I still hold one of the old Manly Fast Ferry Travel 10 Smartcards – will it still work?
The Travel 10 Smartcard will still operate on our ticket machines but we are endeavouring to transfer any credits you hold on these older style cards to the new 'Purse' system so that you get the optimum out of your weekly travel spend
