Saw many porpoises while on our ride and always enjoy telling the story of the concrete ship to new people.

This is a great fun free trip for the whole family. Feed the seagulls and take a drive along Crystal Beach before you return.

I have rode the ferry over to Galveston for over 30 yrs. We love going to the front of the boat to watch for dolphins. If you like feeding the seagulls, be sure to bring some bread or crackers. We prefer dolphin watching though!

Love the view. Not a long ride and it's enjoyable. It's a way to relax and meet others. Facilities are nice. Adequate parking if you choose to ride and leave your vehicle parked.

This is a nice ferry ride with dolphins escorting you from Galveston to the Bolivar side. No costs! Nice views! How can you beat it? But, be aware that long lines do slow down the whole process on each side at times.
