If you have a car this is the way to get it and you to Washington Island.

Fast efficient friendly reasonable transportation to the island. What more does one need in a ferry? Ferry was full both ways,

If you just want to take a Ferry ride I would say go. If you want things to do on the Island, go to the Bahamas.I repeat there is nothing to do on the Island.

The caption says it all. We can say now we have taken the Ferry to Washington Island. The island itself really does not have anything to offer. Very disappointed - few shops - few cafes - cannot imagine what the "fuss" is all about!?

Went to Washington Island and back and had a great ride both ways. They do a great job loading and unloading. Nice job and well done by these guys.

We had a lot of fun taking the ferry over to Washington Island. We had 3 adults and 4 kids and we brought our car along; it was easy to navigate getting on and off. Ferry line provides plenty of information on fares and departure/pick up times on their website so that was extremely helpful. Definitely will go again!

I took this Ferry with my friends to Washington Island from Northport during Fall. The ride was windy but definitely fun. The island itself is also gorgeous.

Had friends in from another state, so we took the ferry over to Washington Island and it was a blast. We had also never been to the island before, and all truly enjoyed the ferry ride through the devils corridor. .

Finally took the ferry to Washington Island and it was a blast. Never been to an "island" before and it was extremely fun. The ferry itself was small, not a lot of amenities on board (some indoor seating and a bathroom) but it's only like a 30-45 minute trip so you really don't need much more. Make sure you get... More

My wife and I decided to try the ferry ride over to Washington Island. It was great!!! The leave times were right on. It was too windy and cold for us to go up on the observation deck, so we just stayed in the car. Surprised that it was a quick 30 to 35 min. trip to the island.
