Welcome to the St. Johns River Ferry



PLEASE NOTE: CLOSING for maintenance work Monday, July 25 – Sunday, July 31.

We apologize for the inconvenience. JTA is investing in the ferry. To protect the new fender system, we are adding a rub rail to the boat. This will require removing the boat from service for one week. Therefore, the ferry will be closed from Monday, July 25 through Sunday, July 31. We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to seeing you back on the ferry soon.


The St. Johns River Ferry is a car and passenger ferry that connects the north and south ends of Florida State Road A1A in Duval County, linking Mayport Village and Fort George Island via a pleasant sail across the St. Johns River. The 0.9 mile voyage crosses the St. Johns River 2.5 miles inland of the river’s mouth and departs every half hour. The Jacksonville Transportation Authority assumed operation of the St. Johns River Ferry Thursday, March 31, 2016.
