“A Thrill for the Kids”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Our two loved the shirt ferry ride over to the island. $21 was worth it. The islands themselves are remarkable. The staff really have this trip down to an art!

“Great boat ride and view of skyline”
Reviewed 11 August 2014 via mobile

We had a great time on the ferry to the islands. The ride didn't take long but long enough to take in the beautiful view of the skyline. Unfortunately there aren't any orderly lines to get tickets or get on the ferry, so there will be people pushing to get in front of you. The 2 ticket booths on the left were cash only but they also take American dollars. You can also buy tickets online and walk straight to the ferry.

“Where to park, how to get through a lineup!”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

So we drive down, 25$!!!! For parking. No way, keep driving for ten seconds. I just saved you 10 bucks. 15$ Loblaws flat rate. Keep going east past the stupid 25 dollar lot, turn left into Loblaws. You're welcome.
Now, in line, 200 people in front. A nice elderly man, who doesn't look like he's running away. Tall, broad hat, glasses. Asks if we want tickets, we figure he buys a bunch of adult and kids tickets, and sells them when it's busy. His markup, like 2 dollars; not unreasonable, and he's no hobo, he's smart...and so were we, not waiting 30-40 minutes, but walking onto re next ferry. He showed us the way even. Score!
