Whether you cross a channel with their car, bicycle or on foot…or enjoy the breezes coming off the Texas Gulf Coast, the ferry system serving Port Aransas and Galveston-Port Bolivar transports more than eight million passengers annually. The two routes operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, weather permitting. Peak months are June, July and August, however, March can be busy with those celebrating Spring Break and the winter months can also be busy with an influx of "winter" residents.
