Upon arriving in Mazatlan, I had my vehicle inspected and was surprised how easy the procedure was. The ferry left about 6.30pm without failure. I had a cabin reserved for the overnight cruise, and the staff was very friendly and courteous. The cabin itself was very clean and fresh.After putting my stuff away, I went up to the top deck to watch as the ferry departed. Wonderful views of Mazatlan and the coastline as it was a beautiful day. The tickets included dinner in the spacious restaurant, with music and a bar open for your pleasure. When I awoke in the morning, I was surprised with a beautiful view of the Sea of Cortez and the islands that lined the entrance to La Paz harbor. It was an easy trip, and the return was just as nice. I highly recommend this trip to anyone, with or without a car...!!
