RiverLink Ferry FAQs


Can I buy my tickets online? Am I buying tickets for a certain departure time? Do I need to buy them in advance?
Yes, you can buy them online or at the ticket booth. All tickets are general admission and can be used at any point. Please note that the ticketing system does not accept American Express or Discover credit cards.
Does the RiverLink Ferry run longer during concert nights?
Yes, the RiverLink Ferry runs on an extended schedule for all concertgoers at the BB&T Pavilion (formerly Susquehanna Bank Center).
What does extended schedule for concerts mean?
As opposed to leaving every hour, the ferry will run as quickly as it can when the demand is there by concertgoers. The ferry fits approximately 520 people, so loading and unloading passengers can be time consuming. An extended schedule means that the Ferry can make approximately 2 round trips per hour. 
Where does the RiverLink Ferry dock in Camden?
The Ferry docks next to the Adventure Aquarium, and is an 8-minute walk to the BB&T Pavilion.
Does the RiverLink Ferry run after the show is over?
