Long Description:
Igennem flere hundrede år har der været færgefart på tværs af Randers Fjord. Den nuværende færge fra 2006 erstattede en gammel motorfærge bygget i Svendborg. Den nuværende færge er en såkaldt kabelfærge, den eneste af sin art i Danmark. Færgen sejler hver dag og har plads til 12 personbiler og 98 passagerer. Om vinteren er sejladsen af og til indstillet på grund af is på fjorden. Overfarten varer ca. 4 minutter.
