HOW TO GET HERE 

 

BY FERRY

Ferries depart from the Jack Layton Terminal at the foot of Bay Street, on Queens Quay, behind the Westin Harbour Castle hotel.  Take the Ward's Island ferry and follow the road to the right.  The Shaw House is located on your left, just past the Rectory Cafe and opposite the Algonquin Island bridge.  The entrance is via the covered walkway off the path to your left that leads toward the lake.  It's approximately 5 minutes by foot.

bringing A VEHICLE

You can bring a vehicle to the Island with permission of the ferry department.  Please call ahead for rates and restrictions.  Don't plan a tight schedule on the day you are bringing your vehicle over; you may have to queue for several boats.
