This is free and fun. It is one of the few cable ferries left and is kinda neat. The operator is friendly and good with kids. My son even got a certificate for riding. If you are already in Drumheller worth slipping over for. I wouldn't make a special trip, but add it to a Drumheller day trip.

We took the Ferry into Drumheller after camping at the Bleriot Ferry Provincal Campground. This is a small campground that is located on the edge of the Red Deer River.

take a ride on the ferry to cross the Red Deer River. Takes less than an hour even if you have to wait to get on the ferry.

If you're in the Drumheller area, take a drive and take this little ferry. Takes all of five minutes to cross and you won't wait long in line either. The Ferry operator is usually very friendly and can tell you some cool other things to do in the area if he/she is not too busy.

Fun experience. A short ferry ride, across the Red Deer River. The day we went, the river was running high and fast. The operator, is an engaging man with some good stories to tell.

My family has never been on a ferry. This is a small ferry with a short little ride across the river. But it was quite exciting seeing as it was a first for us. A must see on the dinosaur trail.

This was a little out of our way, but it was worth the detour. My son had never seen a ferry, so we detoured in order to take it across the river. The ferry operator was very cordial and pleasant and the trip across is quick.

Worth doing as part of the Dinosaur road circuit. Do full circuit to take in the Hoodoos and the suspension bridge and Wayne's famous 100 year old "kick back in time" saloon.
