“Casual crossing”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

what a gentle casual way to cross a river. Just ring the bell and the boatman will come. My crossing was so smooth and relaxing and its FREE!

A fun (and free), as part of the beautiful northern scenic loop from Drumheller.

“There are few boats big enough to carry cars on the Prairies”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

I first did this 20 years ago with my young son and he was thrilled. It is something few children of the prairies will not be at least a little excited by, especially if it is on the way to or from the Tyrrel Museum. It adds a little more oddity to this hidden place. Pushing 60 now, I gotta say I went out of my way to share this slow ride again. It is one I can certainly keep pace with.

“We go out of our way to take this ferry!”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

This is a small passenger vehicle cable ferry that crosses the Red Deer River on Highway 838. It's a scenic drive to and from the ferry, just a little bit out of the way if you're heading to or from Drumheller. Sometimes there's a few 'sailing' wait, but the crossing time is quick. You just drive your car onto the flat-top cable 'barge', stay in your car and the ferrier drives the ferry across. It's a fun experience if you've never been on a river ferry before.

“Ferry for your bucket list”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

Short and sweet float across the Red Deer River. The ferry operator is probably a little bored, bring him some donuts or reading material!
