The 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. The ferry is wheelchair accessible, and allows boarding passengers to walk on with their bicycles.

The Tide

Don’t want to drive, park and pay? Want to avoid the hassles of traffic congestion?

Consider parking for free at one of HRT’s Park and Rides lots. Then just ride The Tide to Waterside. We will provide your safe and fun ride, and Waterside will provide good food, drinks and entertainment for a special date night or family fun day!
