We liked it

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

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...
