Great experience for me, my wife, and three year old. Waters were choppy but crew members navigated across river with ease and with smiles the whole way. Purchased tickets online just before trip with no problem.

This ferry takes you a short distance and is worth it no matter which side of the water you are on. The ride is smooth, go when the weather is good, it is a nice sweet ride.
