On October 30th, 1982 The Bridge over Chautauqua Lake opened. Everyone thought this was the end of the ferry. 30+ years later the ferry is here and plans are to keep it here another 200 years. The ferry is operated by the Sea Lion Project Ltd. and is the best shape it has been in since built around 1929. Memorial Day, 2013 we start our 202nd season. See You then.
