    Need to start coming earlier...ferries are so late that they sometimes leave right before the next one arrives

    If youre droving on, check the ferry cam ahead of time to make sure that there isn't an overload. Traffic can back up going into the terminal, so save yourself some stress and get there early.

    If you're taking a round trip for site seeing (it's a cheap $7 or so ). You'll have to get off and reboard,so don't try to stay on during the ships stay at the dock, they'll kick you off.
