The Stout’s Island ferry leaves the island for the shore 10 minutes to the hour. The ferry arrives at the Shore House Dock on the hour and then returns to the Island.

Ferry Hours:
7:50 AM – 10 PM daily

Our ferries can hold a maximum of 10 passengers.

We have both a covered pontoon and an uncovered pontoon which we use alternately or in conjunction as appropriate with conditions. Our ferry is for passengers only; no vehicles are allowed on the ferry or on the island.

If we are experiencing lightning, we will not run until lightning has been gone for 15 minutes. Please wait in the Shore House or a cozy place when on Island.

Our 15% service charge for lodging is used to pay fair wages to our boat drivers, housekeeping staff, and back of house restaurant staff. Therefore, tipping boat drivers is not necessary.

Ferries may be available at other times for a $50 fee between the hours of 10 PM and 7 AM.
