I love going on the Balboa Island ferry to the fun zone every time I'm in the area!

The Balboa Island Car Ferry is a ferry service in Newport Beach. The boats take cars and people under 1,000 feet from Balboa Island to the Balboa Peninsula and vice versa. On the Peninsula there is a "fun zone" with a mini carnival, with a ferris wheel, bungie jumping, arcades, bumper cars, and more. The ferry docks every 5 minutes and is a quick way to explore the area without driving all the way around to the peninsula.

The ferry has been there for decades, and is a real time capsule to Newport in the 1900s. You can usually see seals in the harbor as you pass through, and can get some good looks at the other boats out and about, too.
