The Cross Bay Ferry 2019-2020 Season Starts November 1st

Posted On 11/01/2019 by Matt Lettelleir

The Cross Bay Ferry is back for its 3rd season shuttling residents and visitors between St. Petersburg and Tampa. 

Operating Wednesday through Sunday (plus service for every Tampa Bay Lightning Game), the ferry travels between the Vinoy Basin in Downtown St. Pete and the Tampa Convention Center. The voyage takes about 50 minutes and guests are treated to an air-conditioned cabin, free WiFi, and comfortable seating. Beer, wine, liquor, and snacks can be purchased onboard as well.

The ferry’s return is the result of a partnership between the City of St. Pete, City of Tampa, Pinellas County, and Hillsborough County governments. The goal is to bring full time commuter ferry service to the region in 2022.
