A place for advising highway travelers about stopover opportunities on Kingston's waterfront

You're passing Kingston on the highway. Maybe you've got kids with you, or maybe not. It's a nice day. You could stop for a few minutes, or an hour or two.

Are there any economical water-related options? Discuss.

Ride the Wolfe Island Ferry

  • See our Wolfe Island Ferry page.
  • The Wolfe Island Ferry is free for cars and pedestrians. You may leave the car in the (free) ferry park lot on the Kingston-side because you can do a lot on foot upon arrival in Marysville.
  • It's about a 20-minute ride each way.
  • It's a great crossing, leaning on the railing on the upper deck.
  • Bring a sweater if it's windy. A hat and sunglasses are a good idea too!
  • See Kingston Harbour, Fort Henry, Cedar Island, the Alexander Henry in the Marine Museum drydock, and others.
  • Come right back, or catch the following ferry back about an hour later.
  • Option: explore Marysville, located right at the (summer) ferry dock, visit its general store, or have an ice cream cone, or stop for a meal at the Island Grill.
  • Option: Wolfe Island Bicycle Routes
  • All told, this is a great way to get on water and see the waterfront.
  • All this (except for food and souvenirs) is free.
