Quinte-Loyalist Ferry - Expected Service Period Fall 2019

Loyalist Township has received notification from the Ministry of Transportation that the Wolfe Islander III ferry is being scheduled for its mandatory five-year dry dock inspection this fall.

We wish to provide advance notice to users of the Amherst Island ferry service that the Quinte-Loyalist will be in service at Amherst Island after Labour Day for approximately one month.

Users are further advised that the Quinte-Loyalist has a reduced vehicle capacity and requires half-load restrictions for heavy trucks when in operation at Amherst Island.

Details and specific timing are still to be worked out with MTO. However, with the temporary docks currently in place, an extended service disruption lasting several hours will be required to convert the docks back to the Quinte-Loyalist configuration, similar to when the Quinte-Loyalist was in service in 2018.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

For further information, please contact Alex Scott, Public Works Manager, at ascott@loyalist.ca or phone 613-386-7351, ext. 117.
