During the Hundred Year War, the Earth Kingdom used ferries to secretly transport refugees from a protected hidden port in Full Moon Bay to the safety of Ba Sing Se. The trip took approximately one day.
Avatar Aang, Katara, Sokka, and Toph intended to travel to Ba Sing Se by ferry with Ying, Than, and his sister. However, when the latter party's tickets were stolen, Aang decided to lead the group through the Serpent's Pass instead. Zuko and Iroh were able to obtain tickets for the ferry, where they later met Jet, Smellerbee, and Longshot.
The ferries have a simple deck structure with a large hull and a paddle wheel to make the vessel move. The ferries have a captain, crew, passenger quarters, and a kitchen. The captain resides on the upper deck, from where he and his crew control the ship.
