The ferry is a little slow, but who is in such a hurry when it comes to enjoying the ride. You also get to enjoy seeing some great farm area, and beautiful homes.

Good way to get across river. Fun to watch boats on hot day. Cheap, and fun. Very useful on bike. But steep hill getting off.

We took my father-in-law on an afternoon drive and crossed the river on this ferry. It is a cable guided, electric ferry and was a fun diversion for our family. The kids will love the experience of driving onto the ferry and crossing a river.

The Canby Ferry crosses the Willamette river at Canby, OR connecting Canby to the vicinity of Wilsonville, OR. The ferry is powered by electric motors which receive power from trolly riding an overhead power line.
