Easy to use ferry service for some of the surrounding islands. Easy to book and use and enjoyable would definitely recommend this with easy parking or walk from town

My experience was nice. Have no real complaints. The interior bar is open on one trip and closed for the other. Very inconsistent. Otherwise it's fine. Reminds me of the subs in NYC when the captain is speaking :)

The schedule may be published online. But that is probably aspirational. You may need to go to the terminal early and figure it out. Give yourself some extra time -- maybe a day. The schedule is also seasonal.
