• About
    Skip the traffic between Downtown Tampa and Downtown St. Pete, and enjoy a beautiful ride across Tampa Bay aboard the spacious, comfortable Cross Bay Ferry. With affordable fares and convenient departures Wednesday through Sunday (and special Monday and Tuesday service on Tampa Bay Lightning home game days), it’s the perfect way to visit your favorite destinations and explore new attractions on both sides of the bay. Sip on beer, wine, seltzer, and select cocktails while watching the sunset from the top deck!

    In Tampa, you can catch the Cross Bay Ferry right on the River Walk in front of the Tampa Convention Center. In St. Petersburg, the ferry travels to and from Port St. Pete at 250 8th Ave SE, which offers a surface parking lot immediately adjacent to the ferry and includes free parking for anyone with a ferry ticket. Seasonally operating from October through June.
