Service will operate between Sydney’s city centre and cruise ships berthed at White Bay Cruise terminal
Captain Cook Cruises is to begin a ferry service between White Bay Cruise Terminal, Circular Quay and Darling Harbour in Sydney, Australia, on 27 November.
The service will provide a quick transfer option for passengers and crew wishing to travel between Sydney’s city centre and cruise ships berthed at White Bay Cruise terminal.
Ferries will operate every 20 minutes between 7.30am and 2.30pm whenever there is a cruise ship in port, servicing the White Bay – Circular Quay route in the morning and the White Bay – Darling Harbour route in the afternoon. Ferry transfers will also be available for cruise guests and crew wanting to connect to the White Bay service from Circular Quay and Darling Harbour.
“We are very excited to commence ferry services between White Bay and the City on Friday 27 November 2015 and I’d like to thank the State Government and Balmain locals for their on-going support,” said Anthony Haworth, general manager of Captain Cook Cruises. “The cruise ship market has been crying out for this ferry service for a long time. The service will make transport to and from White Bay Cruise Terminal both more pleasurable and more accessible for interstate, international and local passengers.”
The ferry service has been made possible by Sydney’s first mobile passenger wharf, which was recently constructed and inaugurated by Captain Cook Cruises and will be located adjacent to the White Bay Cruise Terminal.
