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.

Very punctual, quick and easy on and off. Staff were friendly. Great for watching sunset. We took car and you MUST book in advance for there and back. Ferry holds 30 cars. The other option is to leave car and walk on.
