Easy to find and easy to ride, parking is 12.00 if you walk on, food on the ferry is average, I recommend bringing your own water and snacks

The food selections and service aren't the greatest any longer since the old vendor left. While you shouldn't expect much from a small shop like this with relatively small customer base it seems that some customer service training would help along with some organizational improvements

Please go to the Ferry website, and follow the directions. This is a minimal terminal. During the high season of summer, there are few food amenities, but choices are limited, and don't count on the ferry café to be open, also depends on what boat...More
