How to pay for your ferry trip

You can pay for your ferry trip in Sydney using your Opal card on Sydney Ferries where you can take advantage of all the Opal benefits. You can also use it on private ferries with OpalPay to have the operator’s fare deducted from your Opal account. OpalPay fares are different to standard Opal fares.

If you don't have your Opal card you can use an Opal single trip ticket or a contactless credit card to tap on and off. With contactless payments you will be charged the same as an Adult Opal single trip ticket.
