For more information call Ministry of Transportation at: (613) 548 7227

The Wolfe Island Ferry operates from the Marysville Dock (summer) from ICE OUT to ICE IN at which time it moves to the Dawson Point Dock (winter). Low water conditions in the village can cause an earlier departure of the ferry to the winter dock.

The ferry serves as a vital life-line to the Island's long established community. It also services the many thousands of people visiting Wolfe Island and coming from the States in to Canada

Ferrying to the Island has a long history. In 1904, Wolfe Island bought the original Wolfe Islander; in 1946, the Ontario government bought the Wolfe Islander II and in 1964, the province assumed ferry control and initiated free highway access.
