Vehicle Rates to Peaks Island

Peaks Island is served frequently by the car ferry Machigonne II. The Sailing Schedule tells you when the car ferry is running (as opposed to a passengers-only boat). Car tickets may be purchased at the ticket window or the freight window. Commercial vehicle (truck) tickets must be purchased at the freight window. See the column to the right for more information about commercial vehicles.
All vehicle tickets to Peaks Island are first-come, first-served. All vehicle tickets to Peaks Island are round trip. You may buy a ticket at any time, but your vehicle must be in line in the car ferry staging lane at least 15 minutes before departure time. The operations agent will direct you to the appropriate staging lane. Late arrivals may be bumped to the next available trip.
