2017 Washington Island Ferry Schedule

Washington Island is located at the end of the Door County Peninsula roughly 5 miles north of Northport.  The Island is accessible via a daily Car and Passenger Ferry.   One of 5 boats will carry you, your vehicle, boats, RVs or campers across “Death’s Door.”  Legendary for it’s treacherous passage, over 200 boats have succumbed to it’s turbid waters.  However, with today’s modern equipment and technology, Death’s Door is unique, calming experience where the boat ride allows you to relax after your journey and unwind.

For convenience, I’ve included a copy of the 2017 ferry schedule and rates.  These rates and schedules rarely change.  However, for up to date information, contact the ferry office at 920.847.2546.
