Wolfe Island has been described as a magical place where time goes by a little bit more slowly, a place where an old fashioned friendly country lifestyle still exists. Somehow, this magic is just a short ferry ride away from "the big city of Kingston" and has so much to offer to tourists, and Islanders alike.

The Ferry Ride from the city of Kingston Ontario is a pleasant if short (15 minute) voyage featuring scenic views of the island as you approach the landing at the island town of Marysville. The ferry runs everyday from 5:45am to 2:00am.

Marysville itself has everything a family might need from its arty and entertaining shopping, and restaurant scene to the practical things like schools, post office, community center, fire hall, emergency services and a medical center.

The Attraction — Islanders may try to keep this treasure a secret, but the word gets out. First time visitors to the Island are surprised to find lots to see and do with many great places to eat and lovely places to stay on Wolfe Island. Events like the Wolfe Island Music Festival, one of the regions biggest summer events, draws thousands of visitors to the Island but most of the time its a lovely peaceful oasis from hustle and bustle of city life.

Beaches — Big Sandy Bay (right off the ferry, left on 95 to Reeds Bay Rd and right onto 3rd Line Rd.): Described as one of the best hidden gems in the area, Big Sandy Bay is a well-loved beach located on the western shore of Wolfe Island. The area is known for rare birds, trees and other unique plant species.

Bird Watching (everywhere!) — Over two-hundred species of birds live on or migrate through the island throughout the year, making Wolfe Island a perfect place for birders. In fact, the island has been recognized by Important Bird Areas of Canada - an initiative that monitors and conserves significant bird habitats. All you need is a good bird book and a pair of binoculars!

Cycling (various routes) — The first thing I was ever told about Wolfe Island was that the cycling is excellent, and it's true. Four main routes have been established through coloured signage. Most of these routes take cyclists away from heavily trafficked areas, making for a peaceful, pleasant tour of the countryside.

Family Fun — The Wolfe Island Corn Maze (right turn off the ferry and up Hwy 95 about 3.2km): This corn maze is a popular destination for kids of all ages, run from the beginning of August to the beginning of November. This fun and sometimes spooky maze offers affordable good times.

Surrounded By Shorelines — The Island is a water lovers paradise with great Swimming, Sailing, Boating and Fishing opportunities all around the island. For anglers the waters surrounding the island are filled with fish of all types and sizes including Walleye, Small Mouth Bass, Pike and Muskellunge.

Water Sport Haven — The legendary winds on the lsland keep smiles on the faces of the many windsurfers and kite surfing enthusiasts.

Golfing (802 9th Line Rd.) — Riverfront Golf Course is a nine hole course designed to meet the needs of seasoned and beginner golfers alike.

History — Old House Museum (Leander Street, near the ferry dock): The Old House Museum is the oldest home in Marysville. The museum is run by volunteers and houses a variety of items from Wolfe Island's history such as stories of the ferry from a captain's perspective.

Wind Turbine Tours (everywhere!) — Print off the Self-Guided Wolfe Island Walking Tour Map and narrative and take yourself and your family on a tour of the wind turbines that populate the west end of the island. Learn about hydro developers, the history of the wind farm, how wind turbines work and are constructed, and much more.

The day features the annual chili competition, ice skating, hockey and other games, as well as hay rides around the village. The festival takes place near the end of January or beginning of February.
