We went on the sunset dinner cruise. The service was very attentive, the meal fabulous. It was quite a stormy night out so that didn't make it a lot of fun. We had a great trip and other than the fact that the bathrooms were a bit grungy at the end of it as a lot of people were not... More

We paid $90 for pickup truck and four people on a one way trip. We took the last 8 pm trip to Manitoulin Island. The parking on the deck of the ferry was very surreal. It felt like a scene from a movie. The views were nice and the cafeteria was pretty good and reasonably priced. My kids had a... More

Our plans were to take the Chi-Cheemaun from Tobermory to South Baymouth for a trip to Sault Ste. Marie, and then from South Baymouth to Tobermory 2 days later on our return trip. Unfortunately the first sailing was cancelled due to very rough conditions. While some people were upset, this showed us that safety is first. On our return trip... More

A wonderful relaxing method of travel! Staff were very helpful and answered all my questions. Only worry was when drivers ignored the signs and started their vehicles before the ship was ready to unload.

We took the 8PM ferry to Manitoulin Island on Friday. We had reservations and gave our last name and paid for the ferry ride which came out to $77.95 for 2 people + Subaru Crosstrek. The attendant will tell you which lane # he wants you on. We parked our car at 5:50PM, locked it up, and went to a... More

So we decide to take the ferry to Manitiolin Island - and am I glad we did - the boat is awesome. One tip - be there on time and reserve your trip ahead of time - a lot of people use this boat. These guys run a tight ship - everything is on time and quick and efficient. When... More

If you're in the area, you will enjoy this experience, especially if you have children. Lots of room, lots of windows, and a nice selection of food in the cafeteria. Taking pictures from the top deck is a must. So worth the trip. The Great Lakes are never ending.
