The Chi-Cheemaun had its final run yesterday.
The ferry will depart for Tobermory today and arrive at her winter berth in Owen Sound Harbour later in the day.
Owen Sound Transportation says their final traffic numbers fared better than expected given this being their first season operating without COVID-19 capacity restrictions since 2019.
According to the release, as of last Friday, the ferry carried 21 percent more vehicles and 31 percent more passengers over the 2022 sailing season, for a total of 57,320 vehicles and 154,312 passengers.
It was also noted there were 28 cancelled trips, ten due to weather and 18 due to mechanical issues.
The Chi-Cheemaun provides vehicle and passenger ferry service between the ports of Tobermory on the Bruce Peninsula and South Baymouth, Manitoulin Island.
