Shuttle service between Balmoral Beach, Manly and Watsons Bay. Operates 7 days a week. Opal Pay accepted.

This is one of the jewels of Sydney’s beach scene and you can easily see why. Balmoral Beach is as expansive as most of the city’s ocean beaches, but its harbourside position means it’s shielded from winds and big waves, so the calm waters provide a sheltered swimming enclosure and lovely picnic spots.

Memorable Whale Watching Experience

"It was an absolutely great whale watching experience. We saw a lot of humpback whales and dolphins. Beautiful day. Staffs were very friendly. The boat was large, comfy and clean. It was really enjoyable and I'll definitely come back. :)"

Great Cruise!

"Amazing view of the lights without the crowds. The boat was clean and comfortable and not over crowded. Lots of room to move about and get photos. All the staff were friendly and pointed out things of interest. Highly recommended!"

A Lovely Evening Cruise

"Great deal booked online and a really lovely 1 1/2 hrs cruising the harbour. We enjoyed the outdoor deck upstairs, but the inside area was just beautiful for those who preferred to be inside. Staff were lovely and overall experience was terrific. We were blessed with the weather... would highly recommend!"
