Nope - I was born the year after it was built - it went up in '69.

I think there are still some ferries, but they're gone. As a teen me and
pals used to drive over and try and meet girls at the Hotel Del - I can
still remember the girls we picked up who were *obsessed* with
peppermint schnapps - I was 15, and we were all 14-16 I think.
