Clearwater Ferry Making a Splash
CLEARWATER – If everything goes according to plan, the Clearwater Ferry could be making trips to Dunedin by end of the year.
Camille Hebting, sales and marketing manager for Clearwater Ferry, presented a report to Forward Pinellas Feb. 14 and talked about some of the plans the ferry’s owners have for the future.
Clearwater Ferry is a privately operated water taxi that has been providing service from downtown Clearwater to Clearwater Beach for almost three years. It operates under a contract with the city of Clearwater.
The ferry’s mission is to provide a connection between the mainland and beach allowing its riders to avoid traffic congestion and parking issues. Riders can take advantage of free parking in downtown Clearwater and then take the ferry to Island Estates and Clearwater Marine Aquarium, Clearwater Beach Marina or North Beach.
