“View of the Bay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

It is a great way to travel to the Dauphian Island Sea Lab from Fort Morgan Fort. It beats the traffic even faster than traveling 98. It is also a great way to see the Bay, Even on cloudy dayzs its wonderful crossing . Relax from driving and enjoy the ride you can't beat it

“pleasurable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

The cruise was done very professionally. All crew were curtious, and answered all questions about the boat and operation of the boat. We were loaded and unloaded very quickly. Was just a wonderful experience.

“FERRY WAS ALWAYS CLOSED!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

We were on the island for seven days and the ferry was NEVER running. We called and heard a recording that the ferry was not running due to maintenance. Interesting that the ferry was at the dock but no "staff appeared to be doing maintenance. NOT DEPENDABLE!

It's a nice way to get across to Gulf Shores instead of driving the interstate all the time...take a lil break & enjoy the view!

“One way trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Took a long ride for the heck of it... ended up on the ferry to cross the bay from Dauphin Island to Gulf Shores and continue my coastal journey to Florida and back home. What a peaceful ride it was on the ferry... beautiful day!
