Alma was the second vessel used by Henry Perdriau for his Balmain operations. The building of this vessel allowed Perdriau to extend his service to Bald Rock in Johnstones Bay, Annandale.

In the late 1870's the company and the ferries were sold to John Watson who continued to operate the service.

Alma was broken up in 1891.
