STROLLERS & WHEELCHAIRS
Our ferry interiors are quite narrow and are only accessible for passengers with collapsible wheelchairs. All passengers must be capable of taking a few steps while boarding and unfortunately, we are unable to safely transport passengers that must remain in their wheelchair.
Strollers must be folded up prior to boarding and small children securely held by a parent or guardian. However, keep in mind that some strollers are simply too large to fit on board our ferries.
Please also note that dock ramps can become very steep due to tidal changes and access may be limited at certain times of the day.
DOGS & PETS
Dogs are allowed on board if leashed to restrict movement to 2 feet, and at all times seated on the floor, not to be held on the lap or to, even momentarily, be on a seating area.
