Great tour for kids as they both seemed to like the sites, and there were enough stop for kiddo potty breaks. Best thing was it was incredibly easy to budget time-wise for the combined boat & island tour, as pretty much exact times are given...More

It was a nice idea to take a tour and not have to worry about navigating to all the stops on your own, but it turned out to be a bad idea. We were told we would see four attractions on the island. We only...More

Was very reasonable $$ wise. $25 for the ride over (about 30 minutes includes information about the area from the captain) and also included a tram ride all around the island with stops along the way. The lavendar field was gorgeous!

The boat ride and staff were wonderful, helpful and engaging! They get a 100! I wish I had stopped there. The tram ride was largely commercial, stopping at places to buy things, the stops were very short, about 15 min., and there wàs a 2...More

I Decided to take the Island Clipper over to Washington Island and thoroughly enjoyed it. The cost for me was $13.00 for the round trip ticket, being I rented a bike, which was free to transport. The captain navigates the big boat really really well...More

At the spur of the moment we decided to take the ferry to Washington Island. We also paid for the Island tour. So Much Fun! Totally unexpected part of the day. The tour made several short stops.... Almost not enough time! We want to come...More
