“Going on a Sea Cruise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Well it is not exactly the song "Sea Cruise" by Frankie Ford from the 50's but is is a nice break if you are going to the Leesburg VA area from Montgomery County MD. A little pricey, but much quicker and shorter. You also get to see the Potomac from an entirely new vantage point.

“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

“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.

“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.

“Fun ferry ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Inexpensive, historical ferry to get from VA to MD. Fun way to cross the Potomac. Cost was $5 for one way, but worth it!
