Gets you there and brings you back safely. Saves time and mileage. A fun experience. Ditto the ferry from Wolfe Island to Kingston, which is free.

I took the Wolfe Islander ferry and the Horne Ferry to cross into the US by whimsy, it seemed like a novel way to travel to the US. Both ferries were fantastically efficiently run. The Horne Ferry is privately operated and the 2 gentlemen running...More

This family operated, seasonal drive-on ferry offers a pleasant experience for anyone undertaking international travel. Border staff on the Canadian and US sides seem more easy-going than their bridge counterparts. The small number of travellers are processed very quickly.

Horne's Ferry is fast and convenient. I highly recommend. Price per car is less than gas for overland route. Walk on rate for day trips is a bargain! Ferry is seasonal, privately owned and operated by the Horne family for over 200 years. If they...More

Ferry Ride was timely and pleasant but cost was out of range ... 1 $18 for 2 people and a car for a 10 minute ferry ride!

We were late but they let us board. Very nice of them and it was a quick ride. Very smooth with no issues. We will do this again for sure.

Let's be honest, this is a small, local operation that gets the job done. But you have to know what you are getting into. Maybe, for example, the captain suddenly disappears because he needs to pick up a lunch order (did not offer to pick...More
