The ferry was the first part of our girls get-away! We enjoyed the trip even though it was very slow. Rates were very reasonable for both the vehicle and passengers.

Very punctual, quick and easy on and off. Staff were friendly. Great for watching sunset. We took car and you MUST book in advance for there and back. Ferry holds 30 cars. The other option is to leave car and walk on.

Call the Pelee Island Ferry for scheduling information. The ferry sails out of Leamington in June and July and out of Kingsville in August and September.
