Good way to experience scenic drive down A1A without needing to take long way around. While ferry ride is only 5 minutes across the river it saves a long drive over the bridge.

This ferry which crosses the St Johns river is short but fun and saves a lot of driving time if your going to Amelia Island and Huguenot Memorial Park.

It’s been years since I rode a ferry. Ferry ride shaves about 17 miles off trip from Amelia Island to Jacksonville. My daughter loved the experience. Staff was very friendly.

We took the ferry from Jacksonville to Amelia Island. The ride is very short but saves about 45 minutes off your trip to the island. The cost is 6.00 per car & worth the ride!!

Crossing the river on a ferry is great therapy for some. The St John’s ferry operates on time and efficiently. The ride is only 10 minutes.

Used the ferry to take a short cut from Jax Beach to Ameli Island. Very useful, but remember that ferry only leaves on the hour and half hour.

Not much to say about this. Six minutes and it's over. Six dollars for one person and one dollar for each additional passenger. Not much to see. Not really a tourist thing. Good if you want to save mileage on driving. Every 30 minutes it...More

Nothing really to say - it's a ferry that holds about 30 cars. It can be fun for kids who have never been on one and is something that many people have not experienced. The price per vehicle is only 6 dollars. Once on the...More
