Ferry passengers
Ferry passengers:
Ferry passengers are persons (resident or not resident) who move between two or more ports on a ferry. Ferry passengers travel for different reasons inside or outside their usual environment. A share of these are visitors.

A ferry is a vessel used on a commercial basis for transporting passengers and/or vehicles over the water along a route with fixed stopping points at which passengers may embark or disembark. Irregular charter services are excluded.
