ST. PETERSBURG, Fla — The Cross Bay Ferry will make a return this Halloween season, officials announced.

According to officials, the ferry will run from downtown Tampa and downtown St. Petersburg, starting Thursday, Oct. 21.

Right now it's set to run for the next seven months.

Riders can expect to pay $10 one-way and $20 for a round trip for adults. Debate is still ongoing as to whether the Cross Bay Ferry should run all year.

Service will begin on Oct. 21 and continues until May 22. Later evening departures will also be available, with final departure times from Tampa as late as 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.

“Thanks to a great partnership between four local governments, one of the most exciting and reliable ways to travel across Tampa Bay is back,” said Matt Miller, HMS Ferries president. “The Cross Bay Ferry offers an incredibly accessible and affordable transportation option between two of the hottest spots in downtown Tampa and downtown St. Pete. What’s more, passengers get treated to some amazing views of the bay and both cities.”
