We have taken the ferry across. It took about 4 hours. If you have a pet, it will need to stay in your vehicle. It can be rough below so that could freak the pet out. You do not feel the rocking above, however. and it definitely saves time. Recommend getting a berth/room to relax/read for little bit more. It was well run and the staff was courteous. Heading north right off the dock puts you in dune country which is beautiful. Nice reward! Enjoy.
