I took the ferry across from Manitoulin Island to Tobermory on a motorcycle. I strongly recommend making reservations as there was a large number of vehicles waiting for standby. On a motorcycle you board and disembark first. They provide tie-down ropes to secure the bike....More

We have a place on the Bruce Peninsula, and while we have seen the Chi-Cheemaun arrive and leave Tobermory hundreds of times, I had never been on the Chi-Cheemaun! My husband surprised me with tickets to go to South Baymouth and back in one evening,...More
