Cable Ferry on the California Delta

This cable-drawn ferry crosses Little Connection Slough at Herman and Helen's Marina. Only two ferries remain in the Delta that can be used by the general public. The Real McCoy, a free-running ferry takes vehicles across Cache Slough to Ryer Island and cable-drawn J-Mack ferry crosses Steamboat Slough.
