We didn't have time to even step foot on Wolfe Island, but took the 25 minute ferry ride there and back again from Kingston. We went on foot (no car) and sat on benches on the top level and enjoyed the sun, breeze, and view.

This is a free and fast way to get over to Wolfe Island. Leaves every hour and takes 20 minutes to cross. Great on foot or by car (we did both).

Nice short ride and great view, a little off on the schedule but ok anyways because the waiting area is well located close to the water

Accessible by car, bike, or walking. Easy when travelling with seniors who have mobility issues. Wait times were minimal. Great trip if you are looking for something different to do for an afternoon.

The ferry ride in itself was a nice ride with great views. Unfortunately there is nothing to see or do on the island so you might as well get in line for the ferry ride back.

This ferry is a great way to not only see the Kingston waterfront, but it also allows you to experience the serenity of Wolfe Island.

We enjoyed our day on the island! But leave your car and go on foot or bike! The line was long, but we could go on the boat first without waiting in a long hot line at all! Try out the bakery when you are...More
