You walk or drive across a ramp right onto the ferry. The cars line up in special lanes , so the boarding happens quickly. Once onboard, you can get out of your vehicle and watch the scenery from the deck or an observation platform and enjoy the cool Gulf breeze. Your family and friends can all pile in the car or truck or on motorcycles and drive aboard the Ferry for a fun 45 minute ride across Mobile Bay.
