New Anna Maria Island Ferry Starts December 8 For The Public

At Hurricane Hank’s, where we’ve been serving up exceptional dining experiences since 2000, we’re excited to share some thrilling news that promises to set the stage for an extraordinary island adventure. For residents and visitors alike, the much-anticipated Bradenton to Anna Maria Island ferry and water taxi service opens to the public on December 8!

This novel mode of transportation promises not just a journey but an experience, offering a scenic and unique way to travel between downtown Bradenton and several charming stops on our beloved Anna Maria Island.

Be Thankful & Grateful for the Anna Maria Island Ferry!

As the year draws to a close, the ferry service is like that unexpected gift that arrives just in time for the holidays. Whether you consider it a Thanksgiving surprise, a fantastic Christmas present, or a last-minute Happy New Year’s gift, the ferry service is all set to make its grand entrance.

Initially slated for a late summer launch, the Miss Anna Maria and Downtown Duchess ferries encountered a few delays along the way. However, behind the scenes, dedicated efforts have been in full swing. The crafting of signs and modifications to ramps are in progress to ensure compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). It’s truly heartwarming to witness the commitment and diligence from all parties involved, inching us closer to the exciting addition of this transportation marvel.

Anna Maria Island Ferry Schedule

The ferry service will initially set sail on Fridays through Sundays, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. The journey will feature three primary destinations: downtown Bradenton, AMI City Pier, and the Bridge Street Pier. These carefully selected stops promise not only convenience but also picturesque views of our coastal paradise.

More Stops on the Horizon

But the excitement doesn’t stop there. Plans are already in motion for a fourth stop at the Coquina South Boat Ramp, ensuring even greater accessibility to this convenient mode of transportation. Furthermore, preliminary discussions have taken place with officials from Longboat Key regarding potential ferry stops on the island, although specific details are yet to be finalized.

Anna Maria Island Ferry Ticket Prices

Let’s talk pricing because affordability matters. The Bradenton to Anna Maria Island Ferry Service has you covered. One-way tickets for adults are set at an affordable $8, while seniors aged 55 and older can enjoy a discounted rate of $6. Families traveling with children aged 4 to 11 will find tickets priced at just $5, and the youngest travelers under 3 years old can embark on this maritime adventure for free.

The Ferry – We’re Excited to See You!

As the end of 2023 approaches, we’re eagerly anticipating the inaugural voyage of the Bradenton to Anna Maria Island Ferry and Water Taxi Service. It’s poised to become a cherished addition to our island life, offering not just transportation but an unforgettable experience filled with stunning views and island magic. Stay tuned for further updates as we embark on this new maritime adventure!
