The ferries look a little weathered at first glance, but they are sturdy and a great way to quickly get from Cincinnati to Northern Kentucky! $5 to relax in the sunshine and take in the views rather than fighting freeway traffic ... great deal! Unique little attraction that's worth a stop - make sure to have cash.

I use this whenever I go to or from the airport. It's a great shortcut. Only takes a few minutes to get over to the other side, drive up the hill and you are there. Always felt safe on the ferry and it is very inexpensive.

I travel weekly on the Anderson Ferry because it is close to my home and the easiest way to cross the Ohio River for me to get to the Greater Cincinnati Airport and Northern Kentucky. But in the summer, spring, and fall, the sunsets when there are partly cloudy skies over the river are as beautiful as sunsets I have... More

Super fast way to get from the West side of Cincinnati to Kentucky or the Airport. It a really cool experience you have to try at least once.

When relatives fly into town and I am picking up / driving them to the airport in the mid/late afternoon, you can bet I'm preferring $5/each way, to sitting in traffic for over an hour on I-71/75.

The Anderson Ferry is a cool way to travel from Kentucky to Cincinnati, OH, but is also quite convenient, as it cuts out miles of driving on I-275. The original ferry was established in 1817, and was used to ferry horses and people across the river. Today, you can ride for $5 (for a normal size car.) It is worth... More

It is always a blast to cross the river on the Anderson Ferry especially on a bicycle which I have done many times. Prices are reasonable and the equipment is well kept. There are only 3 ferries still running on the Ohio river. We are fortunate to have one of them.

Decided to forgo I-75 rush hour traffic and take the scenic drive to Cincinnati. Beautiful fall day.

These guys have been running the ferry for DECADES and I feel very secure on the ride. It's fun on a sunny afternoon, but the main benefit to me is the time it saves getting to CVG versus getting stuck on I-75.
