Website showed that this ferry was in operation, when we got there, a sign was posted and the gates were locked. 3 days later went to the website again and there it stated that it will be closed until September. Disappointing, sorry I had to give it 2 stars.
This ferry used to be the closest place for us to cross the Willamette before the I-5 bridge. It is maintained well, and during the winter is closed for service due to possible danger with high water. The fare is cheap and the ferry only carries a few cars (plus bicycles) at a time from Canby to Wilsonville. This is... 更多
I love Ferries! As a young man we'd take the ferry from Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Ludington, Michigan which takes a few hours so whenever I get a chance I take the Canby Ferry or the Buena Vista but most of the time the Wheatland Ferry. It cost $2 for the crossing which seems quite reasonable to keep it running and... 更多
The Canby Ferry takes you across the Willamette river between Wilsonville and Canby. The drive to either spot meanders through beautiful countryside on winding roads. Don't go on the freeway to get there but venture out into the country. On the Canby side is Mollala State Park which has many picnic areas and boat ramp and clean rest rooms so... 更多
My little boys and made a special trip to take the ferry from the Wilsonville side to Canby. They loved it! It runs back and forth all day so just go when you're ready. It's about a five minute ride. The drive to the ferry point is beautiful too, a twisty steep road going through some lovely farmland. Definitely a... 更多
Although we do not have many ferries in the Portland area, this one is the best. My dad would take me across as a special trip and I do the same with my kids. My children are nearly grown but if we are in the area they still ask to cross. I happily ablige.
This ferry is the scenic route to Stafford, Wilsonville and West linn areas. If you're a golfer, go to the public golf course of Sandilee. 18 holes of fun and relaxation. The Canby ferry is one of two ferries to cross the Willamette river. The canby ferry to the north and the wheatland ferry west of Brooks. Take a ride... 更多
I have taken the ferry dozens of times and it sure beats having to go to the I5 bridge or to cross the Willamette in Oregon City. It's fun, it's convenient, it costs a few bucks and it saves a ton of time! What's not to like? I routinely take the Wheatland Ferry and the Buena Vista Ferry. In fact... 更多
The Canby Ferry is a nice little newly rebuilt community ferry. Whenever your doing a Willamette Vally Road trip, try to include this attraction in the itinerary. One of the best is to go South on 99W,and return on 99E. To save time,and end the trip with a beautiful drive, when in Canby, go West to the Canby Ferry for... 更多
We took the ferry just because we had never been on one, it was kind of scary driving down the steep ramp onto the ferry. If you have time I would recommend it .
