I was very impressed by the service provided by this ferry line. Well organized! Gave us bracelets with our departure times and everyone had a seat. Even sold drinks and water on the boat at a fair price!! Very happy with them!!

Once we got to right location everything went great! They moved their location from when their magazine advertised, which caused a little unwanted stress. The trip to Taboga Island was wonderful though.

The ferry is a nice ride that gives a great view of the City and connects you to a beautiful beach area that also has some excellent restaurants.

Ferry was spectacular, however when we went to the office to ask a question, where wasn't an office. I know you all have moved several times, there should have been someone there to assist us. Over all really nice.

They were on time, fast to get us both to and from the island and in fact, we were caught in a downpour on the way back to the mainland and the crew did a great job getting us back safely.

Not during the week. On Sat, Sun & holidays one leaves at 4:30pm. There's a Country Inn Suites next door to the dock, so you could always stay the night on Monday and take first ferry on Tuesday morning. Go to there website... More
