Owen Sound Ferry System

Hi All,
Been looking at some maps planning a trip to Cooperstown, NY for a baseball tournament. Curious to hear of anyone's experience with the ferry system at Owen Sound. We would be riding from home in UP of Michigan, crossing into Ontario at the Soo, then headed east and south to Owen Sound. Lodging in Tobermory at end of ferry crossing.

Re: Owen Sound Ferry System

As far as I know there is no ferry service in Owen Sound, just the offices for the service from Tobermory to South Baymouth. We took the Chee-Chimaun to Manitoulin Island a couple of years ago and it was bikes on first and bikes off the ferry first. The tie downs they provide are little more than a couple of pieces of rope, it was a calm day but if it had been a little windy I would not have had the confidence that real straps provide.

The ferry does not run in the winter, I think it runs from mid May to mid October. They suggest having a reservation but the day we took it more than half the bikes just arrived and got on. In the summer the hotels and motels fill up quickly on the weekends so if you can make reservations before arriving.

p.s. this is a video that starts with us leaving the ferry at South Baymouth

Re: Owen Sound Ferry System

Silly me...I don't know how I came up with Owen Sound. Yes, we would be looking at South Baymouth to Tobermory.
