Clean ferry. On-time departure and arrival. Don’t think it is right to charge for infants but at least we had an extra seat. Boarding was 30 minutes prior to departure so no need to arrive 90 minutes ahead of time.

The trip was easy enough, the boat was freezing though due to the overpowering AC! Other than that, no problem!

The seats were in need of a clean and all the windows had poor visibility as dirty.

Not too bad. Was late. Should upgrade the old jetty with a cafe and better airconditioning. Really difficult to look out of the window much either.
