14 Scenic Vistas



Canal Street Ferry,
aka Algiers Ferry

Where: The foot of Canal Street to Algiers Point and back

$1 for automobiles from West Bank to East Bank, free the other way; bicycles and pedestrians always board and travel for free. Ferries depart daily from the West Bank on the hour and half-hour, beginning at 6 a.m. Departures from the East Bank occurs on the quarter hour and three quarters hour; the last ferry departs at 12:15 a.m.

Why: In regular service since 1827, the view from this ferry crossing from Algiers Point, especially at night, provides a sensory presentation of New Orleans. Whether you climb out of your car to stand near the railing, hop off your bike or walk aboard, there are very few moments like those quiet ones with the river spray and the city coming ever-closer – especially if you’re lucky enough to have a musician or two playing on board with you.
