Only dependable link across Ontario Lake to reach Wolfe Island from Kingston at hourly intervals. Both vehicles and passengers use this ferry at no cost. It is worth watching the crew direct 55+ vehicles on and off the ferry rapidly and efficiently.

Have been on the Wolfe Island ferry many times over the years. This trip was no exception. This short 20 minute ride is a pleasure and when you get to the island a new adventure begins. The ferry is FREE!!!!!

I had forgotten how enjoyable the trip to Wolfe Island could be. Took the trip over for lunch and back. A great time, and cannot beat the price!

While vacationing in Kingston, some locals suggested that we take the ferry across to Wolfe Island. We couldn't believe it's a FREE ferry service, taking you to an island that is like stepping back into the '50's.

This ferry is free for passengers on foot or in a vehicle. Takes abut 20 mins to cross to the Island. There are a couple of bars/resto that sometimes offer free entertainment. Worth a hop over for a drink. :)

The best views of Kingston are from the deck of the ferry as it takes you to Wolfe Island. It's about a 25 minute trip and there is plenty to see from the deck as well as when you arrive in the middle of the...More
