first_imgCaptain Cook Cruises was given the green light last Friday, by the NSW State Government, to begin a ferry service to and from Sydney’s International Convention Centre (ICC) wharf. The purpose-designed and built, fast 60 passenger catamaran ferries will operate a high frequency, low cost daily service that will be operational in just a few weeks – running from early morning to evening – between the ICC, Barangaroo and Circular Quay.Captain Cook Cruises’ announcement comes after Andrew Constance, Minister for Transport and Infrastructure announced that commercial ferry operators will be allowed to provide direct services to Convention Wharf, and services between Manly and Darling Harbour, without needing a passenger service contract with Transport for NSW.“From today, we’ve removed the red tape for private operators allowing them to deliver more and better ferry services around our harbour including taking visitors directly to the new International Convention Centre,” Mr Constance said.
