Ride the Dauphin Island Ferry

Dauphin Island Ferry is also known as the Mobile Bay Ferry. It provides auto and pedestrian ferry service for guests of our Dauphin Island rentals to nearby Ft. Morgan and Gulf Shores. The Dauphin Island ferry schedule varies by time of year and local sea conditions.

Considered the Gulf Coast’s most scenic drive, you will save hours of driving time using the ferry. The trip between Fort Gaines on Dauphin Island and Mobile Point has exceptional views. It takes 40 minutes and you may see dolphins, birds, oil rigs and other boats along the way.

There are two boats, the Fort Morgan and the Marissa Mae Nicole. Service is year round with both ferries operating in summer.

Cost: $16 for car and driver and $4.50 for each additional passenger.

Adults without cars are $5.00 each.

Credit cards are accepted.
