“A little mini cruise”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Across the Potomac into either va or md. It can save you time especially during off peak hours. A bit pricey but saves time and gas

“A fun way to cross the Potomac”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

It's not often one can cross a rive on a ferry. While the trip is short and not extraordinary by any stretch, you can include it as a bonus surprise for little ones if your travels take you between suburban Maryland and No. Virginia.

“Long time ago”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

White's Ferry is just that...a ferry ride across the Potomac. It is a great short cut from Virginia to Maryland. There is a small shop and the staff is most friendly. The Ferry Operators are amazing, out in all weather. Hint: In real adverse weather you may want to call ahead to see if the ferry is running.

“Its just cool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

It can be a shortcut if you know the traffic and where you need to go. I have used it many times. Sometimes just for a change of pace and to avoid Capital Beltway traffic.

“Very cool Ferry”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

This is very convenient if you are going over to western MD. In addition its inexpensive and different than driving on the highway. Be careful of the spped cameras on the MD side.
