We have free ferry ride which I s nice to see a different view of Kingston and the Fort. Watch out where you stand on the ferry as the ship is sooty and spews out soot onto your clothes.

Doesn't get any better in he summer time. Special with big sandy bay open in the summer. Check your timings..Sometimes the ferry can be full. Would suggest getting there 10 mins prior

Wolfe Island is a nice place to visit but be aware that as soon as the water level drops to a certain level, they don’t dock in the middle of the city anymore; they dock at the “winter dock” which is 5 km from the downtown. (We went November 10th, and we docked at the winter dock). If you are... More

it's free, we don't have to wait long, it's like a mini cruise if you get out of your car and go above,

Always enjoyable to cross the water on the ferry as it offers the sites from a different perspective from the water. It is especially nice on a warm day, or at night to watch the sunset. Nice way to travel for free, then fun to explore Wolfe Island.

Nothing noteworthy either way. This little ferry gets you from one side of the water to the other. No fuss no muss just good decent service/ What more do you want out of a ferry ride that is 10 minutes long.

Worth the trip. Staff ensure. That as many vechiles as possible are loaded safely. Unfortunately felt like sardines in a can, but that's part of ferry riding.

Park your car at the ferry dock for free or just drive on to the ferry and head to Wolfe Island. A great place to take the kids and the views of Fort Henry, RMC, Kingston and The islands are wonderful. Dont forget to bring a camera. You can just stay on the ferry if you walked on or spend... More
