Ferry System

Car Ferry

The ferry system here is a little different than in Washington (as I’m sure you could have guessed). Aside from a much more sparse schedule (there are two ferries, they leave once in the morning and once in the afternoon), there are the docking procedures. The backing up to the dock is skilled, but boring. Watching the workers jump in the water to swim the ropes to shore, however, is much more interesting.

The two ferries mentioned above can hold six cars. You have to climb on the bumpers of the cars to get out once you’ve arrived, but they will fit. There are other random passenger ferries that I haven’t figured out yet. But they’re quite colorful too.
