Ferry line meeting the demand

People taking advantage of the outdoors are finding their way to the Washington Island Ferry Line. As the pandemic wore on, the Washington Island Ferry slowly expanded its services as the state opened up. Ferry President Hoyt Purinton says they look at weather reports, website hits, and hotel bookings to forecast how ridership may be a couple of weeks out. Although he has been surprised by the amount of traffic all things considered, Purinton says there have been some factors working in their favor.

The Washington Island Ferry Line is doing daily roundtrips to and from Northport about every 45 minutes from 6:45 a.m. to 6:45 p.m. in addition to weekend night trips.
