After a busy summer of transporting visitors to and from Rock Island this summer, the Karfi Ferry is preparing for its final trips this year. During the peak summer season, the small passenger ferry headed to the remote island eight times a day from Washington Island’s Jackson Harbor. The Washington Island Ferry increased the number of trips on Fridays and Saturdays based on customer demand. Ferry President Hoyt Purinton says it was a busy summer for the Karfi Ferry.
The Karfi Ferry will make its final four round trips of the year on October 8th. You can find a schedule for both the Washington Island and Karfi ferries online with this story.
