Ferry ready for another big season

You can count on the Washington Island Ferry being prepared for another busy year when it expands its trip offerings on Friday. Higher water levels have allowed the ferry line to extend and raise their dock platforms and the lack of ice has allowed crews to focus on getting its fleet ready. Washington Island Ferry President Hoyt Purinton expects another big summer as spring gets off to a cool start.

Friday marks the first day the Rock Island Ferry will operate with four round trips daily. The ferry schedule will hold steady at 11 roundtrips until the first day of summer when its daily slate nearly doubles.
