Yes, two hundred would reserve two spots. You would be able to drive to the
ferry terminal. I'm not clear whether the ferry to the island is a walk on
only ferry or if it allows cars. There's plenty of parking at the terminal
if you can't take your car to the island. Once you reach the island,
there's really no need for a car, since you can walk anywhere you want to
go. I'll check on the nature of the ferry and get back to you. Most people
just walk on so haven't had that question before.
