This is a great free way to view Kingston's waterfront, Old Fort Henry, RMC, the Martello Towers and more. Board the ferry at the docks on Ontario street near The Tragically Hip Way just past the Tim Horton's. If you are just visiting the other side then park your car and walk on. When you get to the other side... More

If you've got some free time in Kingston, hop on the Wolfe Islander III ferry. It's a free ride that drops you off in the little village on the island where you can have a nice walk around (or drive if you bring your car along). There are a couple of places for a bite or a drink and then... More

For the best view of Kingston and it's famous attractions grab a front row seat on the Wolfe Island Ferry. Sit back, cool off, and relax. Located at the bottom of Queen Street in downtown, you can drive, bike, or walk on, it's free and will cruise by the Royal Military College, Old Fort Henry and Kingston City Hall. You'll... More

Thank you Canada for the ferry boat service to and from Wolfe Island and Kingston. The ferry must handle 50+ cars and unlimited pedal and foot passengers. Beautiful view into Kingston of a great waterfront and into Wolfe Island of multiple wind towers.

We took our grandkids on the Wolfe Islaner 111 on our way back to Cobourg from Lake Placid. They loved it. ( ages 12, 8, and 6). It's free, fun, and not too long. We toured the island, had supper at the General Wolfe restaurant, then caught the ferry back to Kingston and continued home.

The ferry to Kingston was a positive experience. It appeared to hold a lot of vehicles (including big trucks). It was fast to Wolfe Island and run efficiently at both loading areas.

Took the ferry out to Wolfe Island for the experience and would definitly recommend if you have some time to kill. You can tell it's more of a summer experience, although watching the ferry break through all the ice on the waterway is pretty interesting! Ferry was right on schedule - it was our first time riding one and didn't... More

The family loves taking this ferry across to Wolfe Island - and it's free. We try to take this ferry whenever we are in Kingston. We love being on the water so this is excellent for us. We love driving around Wolfe Island and going to the beach. I like taking photos from the ferry.

Offers terrific views of Kingston's waterfront. Restrooms on board. You can get out of your car and sit upstairs, or stand and watch the bow wave from the deck. Free. Try to avoid "rush" hour when it's full of commuters to & from the Island.
