The other way to arrive on Balboa Island is via the Balboa Island ferry. The ferry holds three automobiles, pedesterians and bikes, and crosses from the Balboa Peninsula to the island. It is a very short but most picturesque journey. It is not unusual to see seals, and other sea life along the way!
