On behalf of ferry service operator Hornblower Marine Services, the Mississippi Department of Transportation
(MDOT) would like to make the following announcements to motorists who are utilizing the ferry services.

The vehicular ferry operates daily from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.  It departs from Bay St. Louis approximately on the half hour (starting at 6:30 a.m.) and departs from Henderson Point approximately at the top of the hour (starting at 7:00 a.m.).

In an order to keep motorists informed on the ferry’s schedule, Hornblower recently established a toll free hotline. Motorists can now call 1-877-253-5698 to find out more on ferry services or they can visit www.baystlouisferry.com.
