As a family of 7 to 80 year-olds, we all loved the short but enjoyable trip. Good but not terrific food was available. There was great access to the exterior of the boat.

This ferry was great. It was our first ferry ride, it was easy to board park and drive off! The cafeteria had everything you'd want!

Took this on our way up to SSMARIE. Enjoyed the relaxation of driving aboard and watching the islands go by. Easy on and easy off.

I have travelled by Ferry many times over the years and always enjoyed the experience, until recently! I took the 8 pm ride from Tobemory to South Baymouth on July 14 and had a return reservation on July 18 for the 1:30 pm Ferry.

I took a ride on the Chi-Cheemaun with my parents - to and from Tobermory to Manitoulin Island (round trip, no stopping - we just wanted a boat ride). Boarding was easy, with plenty of seating. Staff were very accommodating for my mom, who uses a wheelchair. The ride was smooth and the views were beautiful. We had lunch in... More

The restaurant staff was very rude especially the supervisor. He was very rude to his staff. He kept slamming things. Ride was fine but the staff made it bad

We loved the ferry transport from South Baymouth to Tobermory today! My husband and I sat out on the port deck in colorful Adirondack chairs and pretended we were on our private balcony on an Alaskan Inside Passage cruise! The water was calm, the ride was smooth and the scenery beautiful. Easy on & off with our minivan. Did not... More

We did the sunset dinner cruise and had an amazing meal. The sunset was fabulous, the staff was very friendly and the food portions generous. Would definitely go again.

The ferry was very well run. Easy to drive the car on and off, and I felt like I was on a mini-cruise, sitting in a Muskoka chair on the top deck. Super nice trip!
