Found this ferry to be an enjoyable experience. Crew was organized, professional. Food bar onboard served tasty hot food; simple fare but worth the purchase. Comfortable trip both ways, arrived earlier than expected due to the weather and was embarked upon arrival-I really appreciated that!!

It’s usually 15 minutes, but as long as you have a reservation you can sneak on about 5 minutes beforehand. If it’s a particularly busy weekend or a holiday, I would suggest getting to the dock early.
