PUBLIC NOTICE – PELEE ISLAND FERRY SERVICE

Issued: April 6, 2017

Ferry Service Schedule changes for MAY, 2017:

The Owen Sound Transportation Company, operator of the Pelee Island ferry Service, is advising ferry customers that the MV Pelee Islander will not be available to provide weekend service between Pelee Island and Sandusky during the month of May while the vessel undergoes a mandatory 5-year out-of-water inspection and repair program.

All customers who normally use the ferry to move vehicles between Pelee Island and Sandusky, Ohio and who require this service before the Pelee Islander resumes the route in June, are able to access the Island from Ontario via MV Jiimaan, already in service.

This change to the ferry service delivery has been made to accommodate the receipt of the new Pelee Island ferry which is currently under construction and expected to be delivered in 2018. In consultation between the Ontario Ministry of Transportation and the Municipality of Pelee Island, a decision was made to ensure that neither vessel is undergoing out-of-water improvements during the same period in which the service will be receiving the new vessel. As a result of this decision, the Pelee Islander will undergo dry docking in April 2017 and the Jiimaan will be drydocked in December 2017.

Victoria Day Weekend Ferry Schedule & Advanced Ticket Sales for Foot Passengers:

In anticipation of a very busy 2017 Victoria Day weekend (May 19-22) MV Jiimaan will operate a 4th trip departing Pelee Island on Sunday, May 21 at 8pm, and Pelee Island Transportation Service will make a limited number of walk-on passenger tickets available for advanced sale on all Victoria Day weekend departures.

Advance tickets are non-refundable and are only valid for the departure time and date shown on the ticket. Foot passengers are encouraged to purchase advance tickets for both directions to ensure they are able to manage their day-tripping or weekend schedules. Tickets will be available beginning May 1 and can be purchased with a valid credit card by calling 1-800-661-2220.  Tickets may also be purchased in person at the Leamington terminal only.
