They offer several ferries that operate to and from Northport to Washington Island on the hour. Reasonably priced and a relaxing 20 minute excursion. Take your car ($27) or motorcycle ($15) with you to use on the island. Fairly easy, you drive your own vehicle,...More

We took the ferry to the island and back. Had our car with which made travel on the island EASY. If you’re even considering bringing your car - just do it you’ll be glad you did.
