A packed Manly ferry has crashed into Sydney’s Circular Quay during the morning rush-hour commute, injuring two passengers and a crew member.

The Manly Fast Ferry crashed into the wharf about 8am Tuesday, a company spokesman told AAP.

Pictures posted on social media show damage to the ferry’s bow, however the spokesman said the boat was still watertight.

Authorities were called to the wharf to interview the skippers of the ferry.
Three people suffered minor injuries and were assessed by staff on board the ferry. Paramedics were not required.

Manly Fast Ferry director Richard Ford told the Manly Daily the cause of the crash of the Ocean Rider was still being investigated.
‘We go through lot of checks during the safety repairs to find out what problem was and that all authorities are satisfied before it goes back into service,’ Mr Ford told News Corp.
