The ferry was the first part of our girls get-away! We enjoyed the trip even though it was very slow. Rates were very reasonable for both the vehicle and passengers.

Ferry ride seemed quick. It was a great day for travel. Restaurant was great and found some comfortable seating inside when it rained a little on the way back.
