The Albion Ferry closes on July 31 [2], so here’s a friendly reminder to take one last ride before it finishes its service, if you’re so inclined.

Duane Cooke, who maintains an extensive Albion Ferry photo gallery, wrote in suggesting this reminder, and also provided these tips:

With about three weeks remaining for service on the Albion Ferry your readers may want to be reminded to take (at least) one last trip across the Fraser River. (Take two trips – it’s free!) Closest transit access on the south side is the C62 with about a 3/4 mile long walk to the ferry slip from Fort Langley.

If driving, there is free parking at both ferry landings if one wants to walk on. Otherwise, loads are light so wait times are minimal. If you walk on, there is seating inside or best yet, stand outside and enjoy the views of Mt. Baker, harbour seals, sunsets or even star gazing.

You can also find the Albion Ferry sailing times [3] on the TransLink site. Happy sailing!
