Mobile Bay Ferry runs between the tip of Fort Morgan and Dauphin Island. I have taken this ferry many times and it is always fun. It is subject to weather so always call first to make sure it’s running. There is also an electronic sign located on the other side of Fort Morgan road from Walgreens at the intersection of route 59 and Fort Morgan road that tells whether the ferry is running or not.
The trip between Fort Gaines on Dauphin Island and Fort Morgan at Mobile Point provides wonderful views of the two historic forts that have long guarded the entrance of Mobile Bay. The trip takes approximately 40 minutes and is a great way for passengers to view birds, sea life and other boats and ships.
The ferry service utilizes two ferries, the Fort Morgan and the Marissa Mae Nicole to carry passengers and vehicles across the Bay. At least one ferry operates year-round with both ferries operating during the busy summer months.
Mobile Bay Ferry offers year round service across Mobile Bay with at least one vessel. Subject to demand, both vessels are normally operated during the summer months – from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day.
