We did not get to cross on the ferry, but just seeing it was a great experience. Not many left like this, so it really is special.

Happened upon this quaint crossing by accident yesterday while on the Harleys w my Dad & brother. Never took the bike on a cable ferry before - a new experience. Before crossing park & grab a sandwich at the grill - super fresh & served w a family flair!

Very nice ferry to shuttle travelers from the Maryland side of the Potomac River to the Virginia side and back again. Very reasonable at $2 for a person and bike each way. The ferry runs continuously and the operator was nice and made it easy for us to understand what to do. Fun and practical.

If you need to travel from VA to MD or MD to VA and want to avoid the Beltway, this ferry is for you. The entire area is historical, many Civil War battles fought nearby and for those who dread the Beltway (Rt. 495 which circles the DC Metro area), taking the Ferry is a charming way to avoid the manical driving on the Beltway.

Whites Ferry is the not really a tourist attraction but ferry boat itself is historic, the river is beautiful and the trip is short (less than 10 minutes). The run it efficiently with minimum fuss and at a reasonable rate. And it saves you over 40 minutes of driving on the beltway to get to Maryland.
