The restaurant staff was very rude especially the supervisor. He was very rude to his staff. He kept slamming things. Ride was fine but the staff made it bad

My husband and I sat out on the port deck in colorful Adirondack chairs and pretended we were on our private balcony on an Alaskan Inside Passage cruise! The water was calm, the ride was smooth and the scenery beautiful. Easy on & off with our minivan. Did not... More

We did the sunset dinner cruise and had an amazing meal. The sunset was fabulous, the staff was very friendly and the food portions generous. Would definitely go again.

The ferry was very well run. Easy to drive the car on and off, and I felt like I was on a mini-cruise, sitting in a Muskoka chair on the top deck. Super nice trip!

We took this route across Canada to Mackinac Island Michigan , we loved the scenic route to the Ferry and stay in Tobermory and the ferry. The ferry personnel were very friendly and efficient in getting the cars on board and the service while we traveled across Lake Huron and the Georgian Bay. The Cafeteria and Gift Shop were very...

Very impressed with our trip. Very organized from start to finish. I was surprised at how many vehicles it can hold. Very nice scenery and had very good lunch in the cafeteria. I am glad that the Chi-Cheemaun was part of our vacation.
