Ensenada - San Diego Ferry is about to begin operations

The Ensenada - San Diego Ferry is about to set sail

It now has an estimated date! The amazing ferry that will carry passengers between Ensenada and San Diego is about to begin operations and this has excited many, especially tourists who usually don't go to the US due to the traffic chaos in the state.

It was in a press conference on Monday, June 3, that Kurt Ignacio Honold Morales, the Secretary of Economy and Innovation (SEI) of Baja California stated that it is estimated that the Ensenada-San Diego ferry will begin operations in 5 months, as the dealership has acquired the engines that, by law, can only be used in California.

In addition, he claimed that the most important obstacle has been removed. This is a reference to the environmental requirements that must be followed in the state of California. They are also waiting for the special engines to arrive so that they can begin operations once they are installed. It is expected that this will happen in 5 months.

Something else that he highlighted was the compliance with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and the Coast Guard. He added that this project has been a joint project with the governor of Baja California, Marina del Pilar Ávila, who was also in charge of managing this with the Secretariat of the Navy.

What the amazing Ensenada-San Diego ferry is promising

It will have capacity for 330 people. Departure times from San Diego to Ensenada will be 11:30 to 14:30 and 19:00 to 21:30. Meanwhile, departure times from Ensenada to San Diego will be from 7:00 to 9:30 and the other departure from Ensenada to the US port will be from 15:00 to 17:30.

Price has not been determined yet, but it is believed that it will be between $35 to $50 dollars. This was said at the end of the press conference:

Besides tourism, we are seeing this as a border crossing. It is a new way to speed up and look for ways to cross faster to the United States legally. When the San Diego port of entry sees that it is profitable, both for them and the Ensenada port, it could become a platform where they can unload vehicles and people.

Keep an eye on all the upcoming updates of the Ensenada-San Diego ferry that will begin operations soon.
