The Hatton Ferry will commence its 2015 operating season Saturday April 18th. Come take a ride on the Hatton Ferry, an historic ferry across the James River and the only poled ferry still operating in the United States, April 18th through October 24h. The Hatton Ferry operates free of charge; donations appreciated as the operation of the ferry relies solely on donations given to ride the ferry and from the kind generosity of other supporters.

Under ideal conditions, a round-trip crossing takes about 30-45 minutes. No more than two cars and six people can be taken at one time. The Hatton Ferry is located in southern Albemarle, a few miles outside of Scottsville. *The ferry cannot operate when the water level in the James River is too high or too low.
