Reviewed October 4, 2012

I hadn't been on the Ferry in quite awhile, before Ike. I wanted to go over to Bolivar and see what Ike did. I am glad I went after it had been cleaned up. The trip was amazing and it seems it always is. Saw dolphins frolicking in the water, ships going up and down the Houston Ship Channel and just enjoyed the time on the Ferry. It is always fun on the ferry and the price is right - free!

We always manage to take to ferry to Bolivar. We always get out of the car to watch the dolphins. Seems like we always see a few. Good little trip to check out Crystal Beach. Nice drive down to High Island,

Ferry Ride is relaxing and chance to see Dolphins. Try to ride it at Sunset. Free Boat ride and you see parts of Bay from a different angle-including the other side-Bolivar Peninsula

This was a great experience! We walked up and rode the ferry for something to do one day and had a blast! There are TONS of dolphins and the birding was pretty interesting as well. Its a nice way to relax for an hour and the best part is its absolutely free.

Loved getting soaking wet and spending the day driving around the peninsula. There is a wonderful general store there with an Ace hardware that the owner added on to it, and the beach is totally isolated and clean. You can even camp there and build fires and they actually have dunes!
