Parking and Loading
Ferry riders must have the correct ticket(s) or passage will be denied.

Traffic volumes vary greatly. To avoid the heaviest weekday traffic, tourists may not want to travel during weekday commute periods - from Anderson Island in the morning and to Anderson Island in the early evening.

Times listed in the schedule are departure times. Ferry vessel loading may cease up to five minutes in advance of departure.
