Needless to say, these are beautiful rides - whether on the ferry or while riding to the various ferry ports by car. You do need a car - this is how you get on the ferry - with your car. While on the ferry, you can of course get out of the car and enjoy the beautiful crossings on the deck. So you can bring your pets along on the ride, as long as you keep them in the car. We once had to chase around a kitty that escaped from a car. After circling the deck several times and getting under various cars to nab the fugitive, we finally got the little devil. Then we had to get the first aid kit to clean off the blood from our hands and faces.
