Jiimaan will not offer alcoholic beverage services during Victoria Day weekend

Pelee Island Transportation is pleased to be part of your Victoria Day weekend plans. We expect a very busy weekend, and encourage all foot passengers to arrive at the ferry dock early. Please be mindful that we do not exceed the ferries' regulated passenger count limits.

Please also note that there will be no alcoholic beverage sales or service on the Jiimaan from Friday, May 15 through Monday May 18, 2015.

Passengers are welcome to transport, but not consume alcohol on the ferry under the following conditions:

No alcohol can be transported on the ferry unless it is in its original unopened, sealed container, and must remain properly stowed in passenger baggage. Alcohol cannot be opened or consumed on the ferry.

General Passenger Behaviour: All passengers are expected to be respectful of their fellow travellers' safety and comfort. Any person arriving at the dock who appears to be inebriated, or is otherwise disorderly, may be denied transportation on the ferry. The ferry service is not responsible for any costs incurred by persons refused transportation.

We appreciate your cooperation. Have a great weekend!

2015 Ferry Service Start Date delayed due to Lake Erie Ice
Ferry service will begin when Lake Erie Ice conditions permit safe and uninterrupted operation. The ferries are not designed to operate in any type of ice condition, and are susceptible to propellor damage which can take a ferry out of service for a prolonged period of time.

Flight service will continue through Easter weekend (see flight schedule posted below), and lake ice conditions will be evaluated again on Tuesday, April 7, 2015.

Please continue to check this website or Twitter for daily updates beginning on Tuesday.
