Albury's Ferry began operation on February 18, 1959, the day the airport opened in Marsh Harbour. The first ferry was the "Junonia", a 40 foot Maine built lobster boat. The service was started by Marcell Albury with Ritchie Albury as the first captain. As the service grew additional boats were built of wood at the yards of Edwin Albury on Man-O-War.
The switch from wood construction to fiberglass began 24 years ago. Today the fleet is made up of thirteen "Donnies", wide body fiberglass diesel powered boats built to Albury's Ferry specifications in Florida. Our latest, Donnie XIV joined the fleet in July of 2013. All ferries are semi-enclosed, licensed, insured and inspected, and operated by experienced and licensed captains. Equipment includes life jackets, VHF radio, fire extinguishing equipment, FLIR (Forward Looking Infrared Camera Systems) and first aid supplies. The boats fall into five size catagories, 34', 39', 45' , 51' and 54'.
