I read yesterday in the local La Paz newspaper that the California Star, the ferry boat between La Paz and Topo, arrives in Pichilingue today, Thurs. March 30, from Panama between the hours of 7-9 a.m. and it's scheduled to depart for Topo at 3 p.m.

Baja Ferry Latest Information

This is the latest Info from the Baja Ferries Web Site. Please remember this is second hand information - but it's a long drive to not be able to use the ferry

News Flash 1 - The Ferry to Topolompampo is reportedly closed for repairs mid-February til approx. the end of March 2006. No news on the La Paz to Mazatlan run.
News Flash 2 - I read in the Sudcaliforniano that the ferry to Mazatlan will still be in service. What I did not understand was whether it would still travel on same days.
The ferry boat to Topo is going to Panama, to be 'tuned up'.
Also, I believe the paper said that for people wanting to go to Topo, Baja Ferries would transport them to Mazatlan by ferry and then bus them to Topo, all for $800 pesos
