This was so convenient being right next to our hotel. It was a bit pricey but they are on time and quick! The people that work for them are very helpful in terms of letting you know how and where things are on the island.

This company is next to our motel so it is very handy. The boat offers many different times to go back and forth to the island on fast boats.

The ferry was clean, quick and comfortable. Crew was great. My companion left her cell phone on the ferry. They called mine to find where she was. Great relief!

The Starline staff is always friendly and helpful and the new cat is a comfy ride too. They always take special care of the people with special needs and older folks who need a helping hand getting on and off the boat.

Such a nice ferry. Free shuttle from our hotel and plenty of room. There were other shuttles, but this one had the most shuttles in a day, and wasn't a super slow trip. Amazing.....

This is the only ferry our grandson will ride. He loves the giant tail of water shooting out the back of the boats. The staff is wonderful!
