Weather in the New Year has not been a friend to the captains of the Washington Island Ferry. The schedule has already had to be altered a few times due to heavy icing conditions through Death’s Door. Washington Island Ferry President Hoyt Purinton says the trouble comes from the warm water meeting the frigid air temperatures.
Purinton says the icing conditions have also had other negative effects.
The Washington Island Ferry is currently in their winter schedule with two trips to and from the island occurring daily. If you plan on bringing your car onto the ferry, reservations must be made in advance.
