Provides a nice alternate route to the 401 for tourists to travel between Prince Edward county and Kingston. Gives you a nice break to step out and stretch your legs, and what kids don't get a kick out of a boat trip?

Works just how ferry should, efficient loading, good instructions. You can get off from vehicle while being on-board. If time, there's nice selection of brochures in harbour building.

Short, pretty ferry ride which takes you between Lake on the Mountain and Adulphostown. It's free. I've never experienced a long wait. You can get out of the car to enjoy the scenery.

A chance to get out on the Bay of Quinte. This ferry is a scenic alternative to the highway. It is not the fastest route but the views are pleasant.
