Boat trip to Manitoulin Island was great...wish it wasn't a foggy day/night when we went and returned. Food on board was good, washrooms clean and plenty of space on board. The rates are a little bit confusing. To save some money, if you have a...More

Easy to book and well managed ferry operation and quite an experience doing such a crossing on a freshwater lake. Ship was reasonably well appointed. Could have been better food in the cafeteria though...not everyone wants chips and sugary cakes.

Horrible experience. Reservation means nothing. Even a couple min late for the 1 hour ahead of departure means you won’t get on. Don’t believe the guys at the gate that say you will get on. Staff were not helpful. We were not permitted to check...More

1st time on the ferry and on Manitoulin Island. The 4:30am wake up to get from Owen Sound to "the Tub" + the wait in the parking lot made for a long day but that's life. By 7:15am sitting in an adirondack chair on the...More

great experience we didn't have a booked spot, but it would be wise to do so in prime time. First time on a big ferry, the ferry was very clean. Costing is on the web site, food and drink on the ferry was reasonably priced...More

Didn’t even get a chance to experience the Chi-Cheemaun because of the incompetent ground staff at the port. Tried to get information in port authority building and was constantly given the run-around. When we first went in, the woman at the desk told us to...More

This was the most relaxing ferry ride we ever had! If we lived close, just to ride would be fun. It was about a two hour trip from South Baymouth to Tobermory. You see a lighthouse from both places, plus get a good view of...More
