HOY - Captain Cook Cruises

On Demand
Water Transport

HOY is a first for Sydney Harbour commuters – ferries on demand. Forget timetables, crowded trains, buses and traffic. The HOY app brings the boat to you when you need it.

The first services started in December 2018 and operate:

  • Between Elizabeth Bay Marina and Circular Quay Harbour Master Steps
  • From $5.90 per trip
  • Monday to Friday excluding public holidays
  • Mornings 7:00am to 9:30am
  • Afternoons 4:15pm to 7:30pm

Please note:

  • Garden Island Wharf is currently not available due to ongoing construction work
  • On Friday evenings during Vivid (24 May, 31 May, 07 June & 14 June) the vessel will depart Circular Quay from Wharf 6 instead of Harbour Master Steps

Why we're in demand:
