We took the ferry from Northpoint to Washington Island. The ride was scenic and pleasant and took about 20 minutes. Very quick load and unload. You can either sit in your vehicle, in the passenger cabin or outside seating. Pleasant crew.

This fairy was very professional, very smooth, and quite clean. Enjoy the ride over to the Washington Island and the ride back to Northport Pier. Lots of cars and trucks went with us for the ride.
