Captain Cook Cruises will operate new charter ferry services between the city to White Bay Cruise Terminal.
Unveiling Sydney Harbour’s first mobile passenger terminal pontoon. the new services will coincide with all cruise ship arrivals and departures at the White Bay Cruise Terminal from August 2015.
The 15 minute ferry service will provide a “quick and efficient transfer option” for all cruise ship passengers and crew, CCC stated.
“White Bay Cruise Terminal has always been hard to access for interstate, international and even local passengers,” CCC, general manager, Anthony Haworth said.
“The cruise market has been crying out for a ferry service for a long time, but one has not been possible due to the lack of docking facilities for ferries.”
The first pontoon of her kind on Sydney Harbour, Beatrice Bush was designed and constructed in Australia and is 16 metres in length. “Beatrice is a rapidly deployable mobile ferry pontoon able to access anywhere in the harbour where there is no passenger wharf,” CCC stated.
Beatrice Bushwill be put to immediate use transferring guests to the Sydney Boat Show being held at the temporary Exhibition Centre opposite White Bay from July 30 to August 3, 2015.
