The Manta Ray Fraser Island Barge service was started approximately ten years ago and continues to be owned and run by local operators.  Initially set up to break a crippling monopoly of eleven years the Manta Ray Fraser Island Barge Service continues to keep the prices to and from Fraser Island to an affordable level so that everyone can enjoy its beauty.  Like every small company we care for our customers

The Manta Ray Fraser Island Barge service is a small locally owned and independent Australian company and believe every Australian and also the overseas visitor should be able to enjoy the Fraser Island experience.
