Introducing the new Fantasea Cruising Smartcard

Fantasea Cruising has introduced a new Smartcard system replacing paper Travel 10 tickets. The Smartcard is account based, so you can top value up on your Smartcard, tap your Smartcard when you travel and manage your travel in real-time via our website.

Auto Top-Ups

Your new Smartcard allows you to manually or automatically add value on line. Gone are the days of waiting to purchase another Travel 10 on the boat.

Tap & Go

No need to queue for tickets. Simply tap and go and enjoy the journey onboard one of our services.

Discounted Fares

Your new Smartcard provides you with discounted fares (consistent with the old Travel 10’s) on services operated to and from Palm Beach

Single Ticket Fares

The new ticketing system will replace our current paper tickets, Multi-Trip and Ferry 10 tickets with Tap-On credit card facilities and the new Fantasea Cruising Smartcard which offers discounted fares plus a host of other benefits.

Terms & Conditions

  1. Fantasea Cruising has a reloadable stored value smartcard system (Smartcard) which passengers can use to pay for Fantasea and My Fast Ferry tickets and on-board purchases. This is a completely different card and different system to Opal which is issued by Transport for NSW.
  2. Smartcards are issued by Fantasea Cruising Pty Ltd ABN 28 001 868 113 and can be used to make payment through any designated point of sale terminal (which is very similar to the credit card payment terminals used in shops) used by us and our related companies. You can use your Smartcard to purchase tickets as well as food and beverage.
  3. When you tap your Smartcard on the designated point of sale terminal you should wait until you get a confirmation message (don’t worry, it only takes a second).
  4. If you obtain or use a Smartcard, this entire document – which are the terms and conditions – applies to you.
  5. We may update these terms and conditions by publishing a new version on our website.
