The Canal Street Ferry

Getting there is all the fun

Some of the best views of the city are from the Canal Street/Algiers Ferry in the middle of the Mississippi River. Since 1827, the ferry has traveled across the Mississippi River to Algiers Point, a historic neighborhood with loads of 19th century village charm. Ride the ferry from the French Quarter and stroll the Jazz Walk of Fame in Algiers. Discover Confetti Park, a whimsical playground for kids. Grab a bite at any of the nearby cafes and pubs. Or burn off that po-boy you had for lunch on a walking tour or along the Algiers Bike Path.
