Experience Pelee for a day or a few! Canada’s most southerly inhabited point is an oasis of green in the waters of Lake Erie. An Island approximately 14.5km (9 miles) long and 5.5km (3.5 miles) wide where pristine beaches, natural areas and a leisurely pace await you, together with various Accommodation options, from cottages and camping to motels, B&Bs or a Victorian inn.
Getting there and Getting Around…
The Island also offers marina facilities for pleasure boaters, an auto-ferry service which operates from mainland Canada or Sandusky, OH (1-800-661-2220 or (519) 724-2115), or regular and chartered flights from Canada or the US. Many who choose to "leave the car at home" experience the true flavour of the Island by bicycle (bring your own or rent one there)! See all the Island nooks and crannies on a guided tour (by bicycle or auto).
Because the Island is considered an ’international port’, both US and Canadian visitors to Pelee may experience some heightened security measures, which may include property searches. It is also noted that all passengers should arrive at the dock no later than 30 minutes prior to their ferry departure time, or risk losing their reservation. Pelee Island Transportation has provided full details, or you can contact the Convention & Visitors Bureau for clarification, 1-800-265-3633.
