The Ferry is a great option to use when going over to Camden for a concert. It is typically not that crowded, it is quick and can be pretty during sunset!

Used the ferry from Philly to Camden for BB&T concert. They ran an extra return trip from Camden after the concert which was great. The trip took just a few minutes and it provided a great view of the Delaware. Highly recommended

We walked down to Penn's Landing and took the Ferry to the Aquarium in Camden. It was a nice ride, not long at all, probably 10 minutes. The fee was $7.00 I seem to remember, but that includes the ride back after visiting the Aquarium...More
