I love the Canby Ferry and For $3.00 it costs to ride it - it's worth it! The river is always spectacular in the summer months and you can drive off the ferry into farmland and farm stands! The Swan Island Daliah festival happens in August and taking the ferry and going to the festival is always fun. You can... More

A fun, cheap, short ride on a ferry that will expose your crew to a little Americana. Be sure to study up on ferry's in Oregon so you can give a little narrative history.

It's a cheap boat ride on the Willamette and while it's just a ferry ride, it's a long'ish one and fun.

Only a short ride across the river on the ferry but it is pretty cool. You can get out of your car and stand in the viewing area and look up and down the river. If it is a breezy day then you can fill a spray on your face. Only a couple minute ferry ride but it is so... More

After years of carrying cyclists and pedestrians across the ferry for free, they now charge a Bicycle and pedestrian the same as a motorcycle. thing is a motorcycle takes up space in a lane, and weighs 500 lbs, where a bicycle stands on the edge and weighs less than a light backpack. somehow the county thinks they will increase income...

Canby Ferry riders will need to find some extra money starting July 1 to cross the Willamette River. Clackamas County commissioners voted to increase rates in order to reduce the county subsidy for the service. New rates are effective July 1, 2012. Pedestrians, bicyclists and motorcyclists will pay $2, and most drivers will pay $4. Previously, pedestrians and bicycles crossed... More

Take a step back in time when you drive onto the Canby Ferry. It's a taste of history to float your car across the old ferry. Enjoy the scenery and let time pass you by as you experience crossing the river as our forefathers did. A great experience for kids too. Don't forget to pass on history as we fight... More

It is a beautiful drive through Canby to get to the ferry that will take only a couple of cars accross the river to the Wilsonville area. Fun little trip to the past.

This historic Ferry is an electric powered ferry which runs between 6:45 a.m. and 9:15 p.m. daily and gives the rider a nicer perspective of the Willamette River than the closest bridges: Oregon City and I-5 at Wilsonville. Ferry service is 0.3 miles across the river and takes on average 2 minutes. The Ferry service operates 7 days per week... More
