Elizabeth River Ferry

Paddlewheel Ferry

HRT operates three 150-passenger ferries on the Elizabeth River between Norfolk and Portsmouth. They travel between North Landing and High Street in Portsmouth and the Waterside District in Downtown Norfolk. They’re fast, economical and offer a unique view of the river and the waterfront.

Ferries operate every 30 minutes with 15-minute service during the summer at peak times on weekends. Schedules are subject to change based on operating situations (weather, mechanical problems, etc.). The ferry is wheelchair accessible and allows boarding passengers to walk on with their bicycles.

You can also get farecards from HRT Customer Service (757) 222-6100
