Wolfe Island ferry to be out of service Sunday afternoon due to staff shortage

The Wolfe Islander III ferry between Wolfe Island and Kingston will be out of service this afternoon.

A post on social media said the ferry would be out of service from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. because of an unexpected staff shortage.

“Efforts to secure staff continue and we appreciate your patience,” the ferry’s Twitter account said Sunday morning.

“The Wolfe Islander III will depart Kingston today at 1000h, 1100h and 1200h and will be tied up in Kingston at 1300h,” it said.

A similar warning was issued on Aug. 7, but a crew member was found to fill the gap and service continued without interruption.

The Ontario Ministry of Transportation, which operates the ferry, says, “An industry-wide shortage of ferry staff is causing service disruptions to the Wolfe Island ferry on some days.”
