A step back in time

OK it's just a Ferry!... But it's Alberta people...and it's cool . So short a ride but it's just neat...and beautiful scenery on both sides of your drive.

Enjoyed the short trip across the river. It was worth the short drive up one side and down the other. Doesn't take long and kids would probably get a kick out of it. Glad I made the diversion.

Crossing the river is part of the Dinosaur Trail around Drumheller and a fun way to cross - better than a bridge. You can get out and walk around and ask questions - the operator was very friendly and informative. If you have kids they'll probably get a kick out of this.

Friendly helpful staff, quick service & a nice view of the river. We were able to get out of our vehicle & walk around during our ferry ride. A pleasant trip on a beautiful sunny day.

Take this historic ride across the Red Deer river and experience the Past. A great visit to the badlands is provided on the approach roads. Good time!

If you have a bike, you have to ride this route. Ferry crosses about a 20 meter gap from end of ferry to shoreline in about 5 minutes. All kinds of time to ask "Are we there yet?" and annoy the heck out of the other riders. Once across, you drive a flat plain for a short period when you... More

My nephew said he did not believe in Ferries and now he has to. I always supported maintaining these modes of river crossing because you can typically pay a lifetime of salary for the operator and more compared to the cost of a new bridge. In this case, however, just having two ferries in a row and some planks would... More

The free cable ferry ride over the Red Deer River is well worth the detour. If you have a choice, approach it from the south entrance. First, the view is stunning when you turn that last bend into the valley. Second, if it's quiet with no vehicles waiting, the south end has the button to call the ferry master to... More
