Ferry service is available from May through mid October.
Before June 1st and after Labor Day, we run weekends and holidays only, with the exception of private charters. Beginning June 1, we operate 7 days per week through Labor Day.
Weekdays operating hours are 11:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
Weekend and holiday hours are 9:00 a.m. until dusk.
We do not run on a set schedule, but as traffic warrants and water levels allow also as per wind and weather conditions.
If you get to the landing and the boat is not approaching, there will be a door on either side of the river. These doors should be turned to face the river, the captain of the ferry upon seeing the open door will return for you.
Estimated travel time is 15 to 25 mintues each way and varies depending upon water levels.
