Walpole-Algonac Ferry, Algonac
The ferry runs all year between Algonac and Walpole Island which is part of Canada, so remember your passport before you jump on the ferry. Walpole Island "Bkejwanong" or where the waters divide, has been home to aboriginal people for over 6000 years. The mother tongue is Ojibwa/Pottawatomie. Recreational tourism is the number industry on the island. The Annual Pow Wow --"Ween Gushk Celebration" is scheduled for this weekend.
