This was a last minute thing. We had been meaning to take the ferry ⛴ for a while and finally did. It’s was fun over all! It’s only $5/car. And it’s short enough to not get sea sick. Just about 5mins from departure to arrival....More

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

This is a .09 mile car and passenger ferry ride. The sign said it ran every 1/2 hour but when we were there in January there were a lot of people using it and it ran as soon as the line backed up. It's $6...More

The waiters at lunch told us about this. It was fun, but very short. I cost 6 for a car. It would be fun for kids

If you're heading from the beach area to Little or Big Talbot Islands or even Amelia Island/Fernandina Beach, this is the shortest route to get there. It's well worth the $6 cost (each way and additional $ for passengers on the weekend). It is a...More

Yes, this is just a ferry ride BUT for families with children, it is neat for the kids. Our children think it's neat to drive up on a ferry and the cars ride across instead of always crossing a bridge. The kids think it's neat...More
