The primary gateway between La Paz and the Mexican mainland is the passenger (and cargo) ferry that runs between the Baja California Peninsula, Topolobampo and Mazatlan (both in the state of Sinaloa).

Many tourists and locals take the 7 hour ride to Topolobampo (6 crossings per week) and the 13 hour ride to Mazatlan (3 crossings per week) every week.

The one ferry operator who runs these trips offers clean, basic accommodation, a rear open air deck, a cafeteria style dining area, television entertainment, live music, a small gift shop and regular cargo services.

The operation runs 52 weeks a year, weather permitting. Prices and schedules are subject to change without notice.

Below please consult the updated versions of the La Paz, Topolobampo and Mazatlan ferry schedules.
