The Pensacola Bay Cruises Ferry Service is set to reopen Wednesday, May 19 with daily service, seven days a week, between Downtown Pensacola and Pensacola Beach. Ferry trips last approximately 50 minutes, and all-day free parking is available at each of the departure sites.
“On behalf of the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners, we are extremely thankful for Coast Guard Sector 8 in Mobile for their assistance in relaying the need for an expediated federal approval,” said Chairman and District 4 County Commissioner Robert Bender. “I am very happy that this mode of transportation will be available once again for residents and visitors between Downtown Pensacola and Pensacola Beach.”
“I am glad that the ferry service is back on track and ready to offer residents and visitors additional opportunities to travel between Pensacola and Pensacola Beach,” Mayor Grover Robinson said. “We are grateful to all of our partners who made this happen, and I hope everyone will take advantage of this service to help reduce traffic while also getting to enjoy the beautiful views of Pensacola Bay.”
“I am extremely happy Pensacola Bay Cruises is able to operate once again and provide this service to the community beginning at 6 a.m. on Wednesday, May 19,” said Joe Asebedo, general manager of Pensacola Bay Cruises.
