We drove the loop which starts and ends in Drumheller, and passes many of the sights along the way. One of them was the Bleriot Ferry which takes you across the Red Deer river. It was the only way to get across to continue the loop but it provided a lovely little break from driving in the heat. The ferry... More

What a neat little ferry - it takes less than 5 minutes to go over the red deer river. The ferry man is very nice. Oh and by the way - it is free :). We just went back and forth and then we were on our way.

We did the drive on Dinosaur Trail and were keen to do loop so had to cross river by ferry. We enjoyed it so much we turned around after crossing and came back same way we came .

Fastest way to Drum from the north. Very cool to ride a ferry in land-locked Alberta. I think the guy who runs it may be the best part: he is so friendly.

Went through Drumheller today on a motorcycle. I took the ferry crossing, it was fantastic. Fortunately there was no one else on the ferry at the time so I got to have a nice chat with the operator. He was cheerful and easy to chat with. He explained how the ferry functions, and a little history of the area. Great... More

This very short cable ferry crossing the Red Deer River near Drumheller. It forms part of the "Dinosaur Trail" loop drive from Drumheller. There's no charge. It's only open from late April to early November. A very pleasant and useful amenity!
