All Aboard! Travel on the Iconic Chi-Cheemaun.

The Chi-Cheemaun is a symbol of Georgian Bay and a testament to the area’s rich Indigenous culture. Since 1974, it’s sailed the waters from Tobermory to Manitoulin Island. Jump on board for an experience you won’t forget.

To book the Chi-Cheemaun call 1-800-265-3163 or visit ontarioferries.com. Make sure you’re booking for the Chi-Cheemaun and not the other ferry in Ontario.

Please note a reservation is required if you are taking a vehicle across. There are 140 spaces and they fill up quickly! If you are not taking a vehicle across and are crossing as a passenger you do not need a reservation, but we recommend making one just in case.

The Chi-Cheemaun is turning 50!

Discover the Beauty of Sailing and Come Cruise with Us.

As an integral symbol of Georgian Bay, the Chi-Cheemaun has made thousands of voyages between Tobermory and Manitoulin Island since 1974.  

Each voyage brings enjoyment of the open water and spectacular views from our outdoor deck. Enjoy a delicious meal in our licensed dining area then unwind in our upper lounge with one of our featured local craft beers or wine.

To commemorate our 50th Anniversary, exciting activities have been planned onboard the Chi-Cheemaun including guest speakers and live entertainment. Times and schedules for events will vary.

Join us for our onboard Sail Through Time Exhibit, a historic exhibit displaying artifacts, posters, photographs and much more of the Chi-Cheemaun and its predecessors. This exhibit is free to all passengers during their set sailing time and will be on display for the 2024 sailing season.

Bring your vehicle or leave it behind with your worries. From RVs to bicycles, our large vehicle deck can accommodate vehicles safely and securely.

Travel in good spirits.

Daily sailings from May 3rd to October 20th, 2024.  

Call 1-800-265-3163 or visit ontarioferries.com to reserve your spot on the Chi-Cheemaun. Although walk-ons are welcomed, reservations are recommended since spaces fill up quickly.
