It was super quick ride getting over to the island. We had to wait in a line and for several trips to get back at the end of the day. We’d go again! We really enjoyed our day on the island!!

We took our three teenage girls to Peanut Island for the day. My husband rented a kayak and paddled over so the girls could use it while we were there. The rest of us took the ferry. The ride was no more than ten minutes....More

Peanut Island has great snorkeling in relatively shallow water. However, it is only good for snorkeling from an hour before high tide to an hour after high tide.

I believe they leave every 15 or 30 minutes, and shade, snacks, and drinks are available while you wait. There is a ton of parking, but there are reserved spots at the front for loading and unloading, which is great when you have a lot...More

Nice short boat ride on a 25-40 person craft that picks up every hour or 2. Make sure you get your tickets and wait down by the boat so you can be in line to catch your scheduled time. You can get bumped if the...More

Great friendly service. Efficient way to cross over to the island. Plenty of space on board. Covered area to stay out of sun. Quick trip across from the main land. Plenty of free parking too.

So, if you are going to Peanut Island you cannot swim there so this is the alternative. :) A relaxing round trip ride on a large pontoon boat, round trip I believe was $14.00. The ride is short, 10 minutes, relaxing, with beautiful views of...More

We live nearby and take the water taxi to Peanut Island often. It runs often, the price is reasonable, and it takes you right to a dock where a sidewalk begins, so it's easy if you're bringing a rollaboard suitcase or a cooler on wheels.

Affordable, fast, and great way to get to peanut island. I think it was $12 A person to take the water taxi and it runs every 20-30 minutes. Its a good size so plenty of people can ride on each trip.

That is correct. The south dock is not being used at this time. All drop offs are at the North west dock
