“Lovely Way to Get to Tobemory”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

What is better than sitting back and taking a ferry across the lake to Tobemory. The ferry has food and drink available. Seats are comfortable. The ship was very clean.

“It's still a nice boat”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

They ran a man overboard drill that took approximately 40 minutes of the trip and delayed us arriving in port.
The food on board was ok, and the prices were a lot cheaper than in town.

“Smooth sailing...”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

Our trip to and from Manitoulin on the Chi-Cheemaun was very relaxing and the ferry is managed very professionally. There is plenty to eat on the boat, with a large cafeteria. It's a scenic two-hour voyage from Tobermory to South Baymouth.

“Smooth but pretty expensive ride.”
Reviewed May 24, 2012

The ride by the ferry was quite smooth, you hardly felt you were on a boat. And they organised the loading and unloading of the cars quite well (we were glad we didnt have to reverse our cars out!). They had a nice seating area inside the cabin where you play games to while away the time or you could sit yourself on one of the wooden benches outside and read in the open. They served a decent breakfast. But it was quite expensive, $100 for a family of 4+car is quite steep. If you dont mind the extra 2-3 hours to drive around the Bay, then I would give the ferry the miss.
