As soon as you are onboard the ferry, head straight up to the observation deck. Very comfortable chairs and the heaters work up there. Very efficient processing at customs.

It's only 21 miles as the crow flies, but an easy 90-minute ferry ride. Always on time, the people are really friendly and helpful and seem to take good care of the boat, even putting up Christmas decorations.
