    FAQ

    How does it work?

    We're primarily a demand service. When you've got everyone and everything on the end of the wharf and you're ready to go, give us a call.

    Bookings are only needed after 22:00 when demand slows. If you think your pickup might run close to 22:00, please call ahead.


    What's our capacity?

    Up to six passengers with an airline-size, carry-on bag each.

    Depending on weight and volume, excess baggage and/or cargo can reduce the number of passengers the vessel can carry.

    Cash or Card?

    We have Tap&Go, credit card facilities on all our boats. EFTPOS, MasterCard & Visa accepted.


    Cargo

      • Scotland Island
        Stacks Image 1785653
        Scotland Island

        Scotland Island has five major commuter wharves: Bell, Carols, Eastern, Tennis and Cargo. The Island is entirely residential; there are no shops or public toilets.

        Note that the Community Vehicle (0404 103 700) can drive right down the edge of the Cargo Wharf which may be advantageous if you have heavy bags or passengers with mobility issues.

        Access to the major wharves is generally only affected by strong winds and sea state, however, there are segments of the Island where access to waterfront properties with private wharves can also be limited by tides.

      • The Bays

        The Bays

        The Bays are on the western foreshores of Pittwater and back onto the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. Although part of the mainland, they are water access only.

        There are public wharves at South Elvina, North Elvina, Lovett Bay, Woody Point (Halls) and Morning Bay. Morning Bay was called Towlers Bay for many years and was recently changed back.

        Access to the Pittwater YHA is normally via Halls Wharf, then approximately a 10 minute walk up a very picturesque bush track. The YHA can also be reached from Morning Bay Wharf which is a shorter walk but a steeper track.

      • McCarrs Creek

        McCarrs Creek

        The western foreshores of McCarr’s Creek back onto the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park and are water access only. There are no public wharves, only private ones.

        The properties are all waterfront and the original parcel of land was known as the Douglas Estate. There is also a small parcel known as the Calabash Estate.

      • Pittwater South

        The various public wharves and marinas are a source of restaurants and social venues for those living offshore.

        Bayview: the Cafe on Pittwater and the Blue Pearl Thai Restaurant.

        Church Point: the Waterfront Cafe & Restaurant and the Quays Marina Cafe.

        Newport: the Royal Motor Yacht Club, the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club and The Newport pub.

        Clareville: the Clareville Kiosk.

        On a more utilitarian note, parking at Church Point can be problematic at holiday times and visitors may need to park further afield.

      Weather

      Bad weather significantly affects transportation for the offshore communities. Storms can cause services to be suspended or shutdown entirely.

      More often, wind and sea state can make travel to certain destinations unsafe or the Master of the vessel may wait until weather passes over before continuing services.

      To avoid inconvenience, do please call us and check if you think conditions are deteriorating.
