Sail into Watsons

By Ferry

We highly recommend catching a ferry to Watsons Bay. It’s a quick and easy way to get here and the views along the way are stunning. The ferry drops you off at Watsons Bay Wharf, only seconds from the entrance to the hotel. Watsons Bay Wharf is just a 15 minute ferry ride from Manly and Circular Quay.
