Shortest Ferry Ride

I have crossed over on this Ferry a number of times. It's the shortest Ferry I've been on and a quick way to the other side. We arrived just in time to board.

An intriguing, brief interlude, this ferry is free (in August 2015 at least). It derives its name from one Andrew Bleriot (who immigrated and ranched locally) who was the brother of the much more famous Louis Bleriot, the first airman.

I am just happy that we went thru it so that we can check it off. However, I felt that they was not anything special to justify a on-purpose trip to visit this attraction.

The ferry is a quick and fun activity to add to the list of great things to do while in Drumheller. We enjoyed chatting with the operator and learning interesting facts about the ferry etc.

On our way to Drumheller from the east side we decided to take this little Bleriot Ferry across the river. It takes about 10 minutes. You can get out of the car and stand on the small ferry. I had a pleasant conversation with the Ferry operator and he even took our picture. You have to take this little ferry... More

Went on the ferry by chance and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. A smooth ride and was interesting to work out how the ferry worked. I don't know why you wouldn't visit this attraction if you were in the region.

The ferry ride is very short and the river quiet with decent scenery. It is a free crossing and the older gent operating it was very friendly and accommodating. The long steepish drop into the canyon and up again was likely the most dramatic we've been on between Lake Superior and the Rockies.

Had some time on our hands and decided to follow the Dinosaur Trail with all the attached attractions. Nice, easy drive through the Alberta country side. Coming to the ferry brought back many memories of river crossings in BC and the Yukon in years past, most of which have since been replaced by bridges. This little ferry holds three vehicles...

What a sweet ride. Once we drove onto the ferry, we couldn't even feel it starting to move, so we had to watch the shores!
