Short little sail across the water to the island - 3 car limit - we took our bikes... $1.50 per lot's of fun! ...although Balboa Island is not very bike friendly.

This attraction is a fine example of what makes Southern California such a special place for both tourists and locals alike. I always visiting Balboa Island on a beautiful SoCal day with the sun shining - and the best way to really set the tone is to start or end your Island visit with a ferry ride - its just around $3.50 for a car with two passengers and thats a great deal for the 5 minute ferry ride across the channel. Its a definite must do activity and so California. The operations move quickly as the staff are efficient at loading and unloading the ferry which consists of cars, trucks, bikers and walkers.

If you have the opportunity this is a VERY unique attraction where you can drive your car, bicycle or pedestrian. There are no other small ferries I know of in Southern California that offer this unique trip. One of the iconic food items is the Balboa Bar and frozen banana, available on both sides of the trip.
