The rowers escaped injury, however their boat was badly damaged.

The incident is being investigated by CityCat operators Transdev, Maritime Safety Queensland and the Queensland Water Police.

"About 6.15am a Citycat ferry collided with a two-person rowing scull near West End," a Maritime Safety Queensland spokeswoman said in a statement.
