The tiny islands are almost fairy tale based. I love walking sitting in this Islander to watch the surf and water slap against it. A beautiful experience in the summer and the bubbles that help it navigate in the mild winter is so cool. I...More

A fun ferry ride that's a good time for all ages. For literally no cost you can ride the ferry, admire the local scenery and shoreline, and hang out on the boat. I'd definitely recommend as an experience to do when in Kingston.

No real amenities (like BC Ferries) but then again it's a short trip from Kingston to Wolfe Island. Needs an upgrade.

Coming from British Columbia, we are used to ferries that are updated and comfortable. Mind you ... we are also used to paying for the service. So, a trade off perhaps.

This is a free ferry but temper your anticipation if you are looking for the ultimate tourist experience. The primary reason for the ferry is transportation to Wolfe Island. The staff on-board are not guides and are focused on loading and unloading. Don't be disappointed...More

Located beside Confederation Basin. Ferry travels from Kingston to Wolfe Island. Each way about 20 minutes and it is free

We waited maybe 15 to get on the ferry and it takes about 40 mins to get to the island. Great transportation offered - and free!
