My kids love the Chichimaun. It's too bad that they took out the video arcade that used to be there. It's good to remember that you are not allowed back to your car once the ferry has left dock, so if you have a diaper bag, food, or anything the kids might need, it has to be taken with you... More

Made the reservation online. You must arrive an hour early or you could lose your spot. Due to some fog, we arrived 30 min before boarding and were placed on standby. I have a 28 ft. motorhome and they squeezed us onboard last. It was an August trip and the ride was smooth. The food onboard is decent, nothing fancy.... More

We have taken the dinner cruise many times. We have not been disappointed once. The meals have been great, you get a variety to choose from. Great atmosphere. Plus the view is great. Try to book the window seat, plus bring a book for the trip back, to pass the time.

A very pleasurable ride even though the lake was quite rough. We were told prior to departure about the roughness. Sick bags placed throughout the lounge. The cafeteria was open for a quick snack.

We were boarded on time in an orderly fashion. There are many places to relax- inside, outside. The crossing to Manitoulin and back was smooth. Everything was clean. Food was good. People were helpful and friendly. Nothing but good things to say.

It's difficult to imagine a negative comment about Chi'cheemaun ferry, its employees or the crossing. We departed on time after an orderly, efficient loading of around 70 vehicles. Breakfast was well above average and served with smiles. The ship was spotless, the colorful Adirondack deck chairs numerous. A very pleasant experience!

We took the Chi-Cheemaun from Manitoulin Island to Tobermory and it was a comfortable way to travel and a bit faster than driving there.

Took it from Tobermory to Baymouth and back. Loading and unloading of the cars was quick and easy. Ship decks offer plenty of room to enjoy the 2 hours voyage. Food in the ship restaurant is really bad , I highly recommend to avoid eating on board. There some better options in both Tobermory and Baymouth ports.
