I came across from the NY side taking the ferry first from Cape Vincent to Point Alexandria then from Wolfe island to Kingston. Pretty views. I found the staff friendly and efficient and couldn't believe it was a free ride. Provincial funding, through taxation covers the expense.

I've taken the ferry to Wolfe Island a few times over the years, normally as a walk-on (which is no problem). It's free, so can't complain about anything, but it does offer nice views of the city (and there's a Tim's next to the Kingston terminal if you feel the need for a drink during the voyage). Have seen long... More

I live on Wolfe Island. we use the ferry often. But even before we moved to Wolfe Island we would ride the ferry just for the fun of it, best free ride in Kingston.

Efficient loading and unloading. Right on schedule. Long lines and wait times as regular ferry boat is in dry dock for maintenance. Smaller substitute ferry in service. Poor timing just as busy summer season gets started.

Wonderful ferry! A nice, gentle ride, takes 20 so minutes to reach Wolfe Island and it's free to all! Note*: The ferry leaves Kingston at the top of the hour and leaves Wolfe Island at half past. Depending on the size of the ferry and how many vehicles are in line to get on you may find yourself waiting for... More

"The Wolfe Island Ferry is a very nice ferry, it's a very nice ferry, it's the Wolfe Island Ferry..." as sung by The Arrogant Worms, a Canadian comedy/folk group. It was suggested that we visit Fort Henry in Kingston, when my daughter asked where the Wolfe Island Ferry was. Since it was across the harbor, we decided to take a... More

The ferry is a fun ride to Wolfe Island. It doesn't take very long, and offers place to sit, observe, inside and out.
