It is relatively fast, the boat was clean and the service operated pretty much as expected. Ticketing is old fashioned with paper still used but it worked OK.

Manly Fast Ferries are a little bit dearer than the regular ferry but they're quite a bit faster and usually a lot less crowded. The staff are always friendly and cheerful which makes for a pleasant trip. There's limited outdoor seating but the seats outside...More

Visit Manly and Shelly Beach...take the ferry. Very nice ride over...there is a fast ferry and a regular ferry. Either one will get you there! Lots and lots to do once you are there...plus the ferry ride is a bit of an adventure as well.

Efficient, enjoyable, comfortable tone round trip from Circular Quay to Manly for $32AUS about double the price of public ferry which takes about 50% longer each way. Alcohol and soft drinks for sale on board.

The Fast Ferry is more costly (because it is privately owned and, well, faster) than the public ferry, so perhaps you were looking at the price of the public ferry.
