Thanks for putting this together. One correction: The Monday - Tuesday trips on the Voyaguer II don't begin until May 30 (see note on the V II website).

The complete operational dates for the Ranger III have been announced by the NPS, so the combined schedule has been updated.

All the ferry operators have released their schedules for 2018.
There are 3 new pages this year.

thanks so much! (I love that the first run of the voyageur is "drop-off only.")

I updated the schedule to reflect the climate. Please take note...this is an unofficial aggregate of the ferrys' schedules. Please contact the ferry operators for latest details.

The combined ferry schedule for 2019 is done.Originally I had one open question on the last trip of the year for the Voyageur II. On this last trip I thought it circumnavigated the Island in one day with no overnight at Rock Harbor. It was unclear if it stopped at Windigo on the way out or the way back or both. I'm waiting to hear back from Capt. Don.

Heard back from Paula at ​​Grand Portage Isle Royale Transportation Lines. Voyageur II does overnight at Rock Harbor before last return on 10/3. There is no ticketing for passengers on the outbound trip and of course only pickups on the return trip.

Great information, thanks!

I am currently planning a return trip for this summer. Looking at the Voyageur II schedule, did it change? In 2015, we hiked RH to Windigo and took the VII back to RH on a Friday. At least I thought we did. I was hoping to make a similar trip this time.
