A very pleasurable ride even though the lake was quite rough. We were told prior to departure about the roughness. Sick bags placed throughout the lounge. The cafeteria was open for a quick snack.

We were boarded on time in an orderly fashion. There are many places to relax- inside, outside. The crossing to Manitoulin and back was smooth. Everything was clean. Food was good. People were helpful and friendly. Nothing but good things to say.

We took the Chi-Cheemaun from Manitoulin Island to Tobermory and it was a comfortable way to travel and a bit faster than driving there.
