    Park your car and walk on. No wait time and can go and stay on to come back instead of waiting both ways. Work it!

    If your an idiot and cut in front of people that have waited in line like you're supposed to be prepared to be honked at, cussed at and get a $500 ticket. Spring break weekend is max fines, Jerks!

    Go to the front and watch for dolphins. Don't go to the back unless you want to deal with nasty seagulls

    Walk onto the Ferry instead of drive. It's quicker to get on and off, plus it's romantic. Bring bottled water. There are restrooms and benches upstairs in the pax area
