On March 12, 2022, the Chi-Cheemaun ferry suffered contained fire damage to its boiler room. The ferry was in dry-dock at the time of the fire which was quickly extinguished by on-board crew and the Thunder Bay Fire Rescue. The OSTC is working diligently to have the vessel ready to enter service as scheduled, Friday, May 6th and at this point in time, does not anticipate any delays.
The OSTC recognizes the importance of the Chi-Cheemaun to the local economy, specifically the tourism industry.
Reservations are available to be made for the 2022 season both online and by telephone. If there is disruption to the season start date, OSTC will be in contact with customers to assist them with rescheduling or to provide a refund.
If there are service disruptions, OSTC will promptly update any schedule changes through its website and social media channels.
