Follow the winding road
Mar 2021
While we didn't use the ferry to the island, it was very interesting to watch it come in and unload and then reload. We had time to walk around and see the preparations needed prior to the ferry's arrival.
The winding road to get there was a treat in itself!

The Washington Island Ferry Line has a new second Icebreaker, The “Madonna”
Dec 2020 • Solo
WIFL had a second and larger Ice Breaker built and put into service earlier in 2020!

The new boat is a welcome addition as in addition to being a backup for the Ice Breaker “Arni J Richter” it also adds appreciable summertime automobile capacity to help reduce wait time getting to and from the island.

Crossing Death's Door in a safe, reliable manner
Sep 2020
We crossed with our car and it was a great experience. Because it was fall, it was a little cold, but we got out of our car anyway and sat up top because we wanted to experience crossing Death's Door to its fullest. The crew on the ferry was very well organized and courteous. They were able to load the line of vehicles in a matter of minutes in an orderly fashion and we were off in no time. It takes about a half hour from start to finish to load, cross and unload. The ferries run quite regular, so if you have just missed one, wait a few minutes and the next one will be there before you know it.

We did go over with our car, a little to cold to bike. They recommended staying in cars, which we had no problem with (covid).

Fun Ferry Ride
Oct 2020
Despite the freezing cold temperatures we so enjoyed our ferry trip to and from Washington Island. The staff were super friendly and did a great job of filling up the ferry efficiently. The ride offered beautiful views and took about 30 minutes.

Riding the Ferry
Oct 2020 • Couples
I’ve been coming to Door County since the 1980’s and this is the first time I rode the ferry with our car, had always been a walk on passenger previously on the other line. Guys loading are very precise and the ride is about 30 minutes. I don’t know why I waited this long and I want to do it again. And Washington Island is awesome. Very cool.

Great ferry
Oct 2020 • Family
They did a great job of filling up the ferry, and it was a great ride over and it was on time. It was kinda pricy for a car with 3, but it did its job.

The only way to travel!
Sep 2020
The crew is amazing getting everyone on and off the ferry. Whether you stay in your car or go to the upper deck during the short trip from the mainland to the island, the scenery is beautiful.
