An Iconic Island Landmark 

The lasting legacy of Coronado Ferry Landing and the people it brought to Coronado are an integral part of the history of the Coronado we love today.  The first ever ferryboat entered Coronado Ferry Landing in 1886, and operated from a different location to the one we know today. Initially employing steamboats with side-paddles, the Ferry Landing originally transported workers, cargo and passengers, but now only transports people and bikes. Since it was originally located on Orange Avenue, the retired location of the Coronado Ferryboat Terminal has a restored ticketbooth that explains the original location of the famous landing.
