What a fun way to get to Balboa Island!! And inexpensive. Rode the ferry over but drove off at the other end of the island! Ride over with cars, bicyclists and walkers. Takes less than 10 minutes!

It was easy to use the ferry to access Balboa Island. Our family walked onto the ferry but the ferry also takes three cars at a time. The prices are very inexpensive at $1 per adult, .50 kids, and $2 for cars! Easy and quick access.

We had taken this trip before but it was fun to hear about the celebrities living or having lived on the water.

Have been traveling down there for sixty years now. We took our two young grandsons across as they had never ridden on a ferry. It is a fun experience and nice to visit the quaint little island of Balboa.
