My deepest condolences to the entire family and community for the loss of Captain Ric. Such sad news. Such a wonderful man . 😪
Queen City Bike Ferry is there a sign on Fuhrmann Boulevard to find access to the Ferry? If so, whereabouts is it? Thanks!
Are you opening Friday or Saturday?
Is the ferry dog friendly?
Who can we contact to ask ... beg . that this AMAZING service runs past Labor day , when Many wish to enjoy the outer harbor for weeks or months to come ??? 22 more weeks seems unfair and a loss for the community .
We have been waiting 45 minutes for the ferry to depart from canalside which totally eliminates the purpose of the ferry. Could have biked to the outer harbor in that time frame 🙄
How can I get to the ferry from Lackawanna?? By bike.
Any chance you're running until after the fireworks on the 4th of July this year?
You need to run until 9pm on a daily basis
