Excellent way to make the short crossing. Clean ship and helpful staff. Unfortunately a group of men were drinking heavily on the ship and none of the staff addressed this. Very inappropriate public behavior.

We stopped by to see the ship at the end of the day knowing it was closed. Our 9 year old grandsons were impressed with its exterior and enjoyed walking around the site by the water. It appeared to be a very good museum.

This was my first ferry ride. It was a little nerve wracking pulling your vehicle onto this big ship but once you were on and in the boat it was great. It was rainy on the ride to Tobermory so we stayed inside and watched...More
