Here’s a few reminders about ferries to MV:
You have the option to book your ferry tickets in advance.
All ferries serve refreshments and have restrooms.
All ferries allow pets and charge a fee for bikes.
As with any boat trip, the ferries are also weather-dependent, so know that inclement weather can cause delays and cancellations that can be non-refundable.
Regardless of which option you pick, be sure to route to the parking lot and not the ferry itself. You should budget time for arriving 30-60 minutes before your desired ferry departs.
