High Water Level Advisory
Rising Lake Superior water levels are impacting the operation of the Madeline Island Ferry Line. When the water is too high the ramps on the ferry cannot properly line up with the landings and our crews encounter challenges in safely loading and unloading vehicles and passengers. Please be aware that high water levels and weather conditions may cause disruptions in ferry service.
