A Postcard from the Field: The Balboa Island Ferry


While on our travels for our 'Troubled Waters' report, our producers came across a ferry to small town America. The Balboa Ferry took its first voyage 1909 and only had a handful of passengers. Today, it carries more than two million people annually into and out of the small island town.
