Manta Ray Barge is a locally owned Fraser Island Barge service.


As we moved forward we request all travelers and holiday makers to pre-book with our office on 5486 3935. This is encourage for your safety and our staff.  If same day payment is the only option we request you obey by the Covid-19 restrictions guide lines and only one person in our office at a time out of each car.  Pre-book is the fast option.


Due to COVID-19 Manta Ray Barge is regrettably having to raise the price of the residents card holders fare for a 4wd return to $100, once Fraser Island is open again to all visitors we will reverse the price rise to the original fare of $85.  It is with much regret, but without this increase we can not sustain our already reduced operating times.  The price increase is effective as of 14th May 2020.
