Sydney Harbour rocket ferries are the most fun way to travel to work, school or play, zooming along the `harbour highway' between Circular Quay, Taronga Zoo, Shark Island, Watsons Bay and Manly. Tickets can be purchased onboard using OpalPay, credit or debit card or save with multi-trip eTravelPasses on the Captain Cook Cruises app.

Masks will be made mandatory for both passengers and staff onboard our commuter and tourist erry and Hop on Hop off services. Compliance will start from Monday 04 January 2021 with $200 on the spot fines for individuals of non-compliance. Children under 12 are exempt but are encouraged to wear masks where practicable. You must also wear a mask when waiting to board vessels at ferry wharves.
