Used by locals on their daily commutes, the ferry also serves as a fast, scenic way to navigate from one end of the city to the other. See why New Orleans is called the Crescent City as you make your way from the foot of Canal Street to historic Algiers Point on the West Bank. During the day you can see the legendary, muddy waters of the Mississippi. And at night, watch the city skyline sparkle in the distance. Whenever you make your journey, the ferry is a great place to get tips and recommendations from true New Orleanians.

You can board the ferry, which has been in operation since 1827, at the foot of Canal Street – right next to the Aquarium of the Americas. The ride is for pedestrians and bikers only and costs $2. Those traveling by car may park in the in one of the nearby lots for a fee.

Once the ferry drops you off in Algiers Point, you'll be immersed in a pleasant, residential neighborhood that has preserved much of its original 19th century village charm. Grab a bite at any of the nearby cafes and pubs, stroll the Jazz Walk of Fame along the levee, or take a self-guided walking tour – see the Algiers Historical Society for information on tours and the neighborhood.
