    The ferry was awesome! Seeing the beautiful New Orleans skyline like this was definitely a highlight of my trip. $2 each way for a quick ride with beautiful views.

    $2 each way. It's only about a 15 minute ride, but pretty cool view. Didn't see much on the Algiers side, so I just rode back.

    The ferry will not run in heavy fog, if the orange and white var at the top of the ramp is down, be ready for a long wait.

    The Ferry has been in regular service since 1827, connecting the foot of Canal Street in the Central Business District of New Orleans with Algiers on the West Bank.

    Ride so you can say you were on the Mississippi River. It's free and you can take great photos of Algiers and New Orleans from the ferry.
