Although we do not have many ferries in the Portland area, this one is the best. My dad would take me across as a special trip and I do the same with my kids. My children are nearly grown but if we are in the area they still ask to cross. I happily ablige.

This ferry is the scenic route to Stafford, Wilsonville and West linn areas. If you're a golfer, go to the public golf course of Sandilee. 18 holes of fun and relaxation. The Canby ferry is one of two ferries to cross the Willamette river. The canby ferry to the north and the wheatland ferry west of Brooks. Take a ride... More

I have taken the ferry dozens of times and it sure beats having to go to the I5 bridge or to cross the Willamette in Oregon City. It's fun, it's convenient, it costs a few bucks and it saves a ton of time! What's not to like? I routinely take the Wheatland Ferry and the Buena Vista Ferry. In fact... More

The Canby Ferry is a nice little newly rebuilt community ferry. Whenever your doing a Willamette Vally Road trip, try to include this attraction in the itinerary. One of the best is to go South on 99W,and return on 99E. To save time,and end the trip with a beautiful drive, when in Canby, go West to the Canby Ferry for... More

We took the ferry just because we had never been on one, it was kind of scary driving down the steep ramp onto the ferry. If you have time I would recommend it .

was taking a drive and saw the sign for the Canby Ferry this little boat for $4.00 takes you across a river in about three minutes. It is cute and quaint and takes probably 10 cars although the most we saw was three. Not sure how it survives probably state money cause its got to be a loser but it... More

There are limited bridges over the Willamette. Take this ferry over to West Linn/Lake Oswego area from Canby. It is a classic ... and hopefully will not be lost. The ferry is just a big pontoon -- only room for a car or two. Do it!

We live in Canby and do much business in Wilsonville (other side of river from Canby) . It's worth he extra few minutes to go out of the way and take the ferry. Either warm sunny days or cold rainy winter days, it's always a fun ride across the river.

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
