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.

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
