Very smooth sailing! V expensive for our car and trailer and three of us (almost $300). But we would avoid the food and purchase it at South Baymouth or Tobermory. We all agreed the food was rubbish.

We took the kids to Tobermory for the first time in July (2017) and we waited for a day with good weather to take a round trip excursion on the MS Chi-Cheemaun. The cost of the cruise ride would have been cost prohibitive if you...More

Crossed to the island last Friday, on our motorcycle. Good trip. Bikes load first. They gave us good ropes with which to tie our bike down (next time we'll take ratchet straps). They had arranged good weather, so it was a smooth relaxing voyage. I...More

I was impressed with the Chi-Cheemaun on a crossing yesterday between Tobermory and Manitoulin Island! Very clean welcome center and washroom where we waited to board the ship... reservations highly recommended, essential in high season! The ship is fresh and clean, comfortable and cheerfully appointed....More

The ferry is reasonably priced and on the day we took it not very crowded, although I imagine this changes with the mid-summer months. Some interesting pictures and historical information on the ferry, as well as good views of the islands, lake, and bay.

There are no cars at the ferry parking lot the next morning so everybody drives away when they disembark the night before. The alternative would be to sleep in the car and was watch the sunrise and go for breakfast
