WOW! I asked a friend who lives in the area what to expect. He said that it'd been years since he'd traveled the crossing there, but that he remembered it as spartan and not to expect too much. He missed it by miles. The experience was wonderful. TOPO-LA PAZ I had a cabin on the way over to La Paz... More

Fairly basic seating. Bad food. Long wait to get tickets, long wait to get off once docked, then again for baggage. Needs to be streamlined.

The cargo ferry sails every other day when the passenger ferry is not available. We were warned the service was subpar. We spent the night in a chase-lounge in a common area. The snorers were sometimes annoying. The food could be characterized as grub and certainly needs improvement. We wanted to arrive to Mazatlan as soon as possible so under... More

Dirty, Disorganized, freezing cold room with broken thermostat, shower wouldn't drain. I can't say enough bad about the experience with 2 exceptions: Great Tequila selection & good dinner. They only make some announcements in English AND when checking in they don't tell you won't time you'll need to depart, consequently they suddenly announce you have to leave your cabin (we... More

After many years of wanting to take the ferry, my wife and I finally boarded at Mazatlán, in mid-February 2017, to sail to La Paz. I think there are at least 2 ferries available. We embarked as passengers; no car; and, all in all, it was a good experience. Here are the pertinent items: * I purchased our cabina tickets... More

Generally the ferry was ok. We took a room for us with children to sleep on the way from Mazatlan to La Paz and back. The ferry itself is not new. But everything was surprisingly clean. In the night it was a bit cool because there were just thin blankets and you don't expect to get cold after the day... More

We took the ferry from Mazatlan to La Paz. Two adults and our vehicle. Boarding was very organized. Be aware that only the driver may go with the vehicle; any additional people must board separately. We had an interior cabin and it was nicer than we expected and we slept well. Announcements were done in both Spanish and English. My... More

Took the ferry from La Paz to Mazatlan. We were in a Toyota Tundra and also had our dog. Price wasn't too bad (around $265) for the truck and a private cabin for two. Dog was free. Gal that took us to our cabin had an attitude because we didn't speak Spanish very well. Didn't really bother us. Plenty of... More

I took the ferry from La Paz to Mazatlan, then back from Topolobampo (more about this later) to La Paz as part of a motorcycle trip down the Baja Peninsula and then over to the mainland down to Puerto Vallarta. I had always enjoyed ferry trips on my motorcycle both in the US and in Europe, and though this was... More

First time ever on a ferry with my car. Great service! You have to buy the master cabin package as it's the best deal you can have. Ticket includes some food like dinner and breakfast. Room was clean. I felt safe all the time. Will use Baja Ferries again.
