I rode the ferry during the farmer's market. It was a nice ride and very inexpensive. If you take their sunset cruise you get to go around the bay and see a whole lot more.

We have a great time during our sunset tour with St. Andrew Bay Ferry. The Captain was very accommodating and led us through sections where the dolphins would come up. The Captain was extremely friendly and funny!

It was a pleasurable experience all around. The captain had interesting information about the area, we saw a few dolphins, shell island was beautiful (not alot of shells), the boat was very clean. Very nice, i would totally recommend.

Captain Hal was great! We greatly enjoyed our dolphin sunset cruise. He was informative and a hospitable captain. He was flexible so that we would see plenty of dolphins before the sunset. This is a reasonable cruise. Definitely much more affordable than the other cruises....More
