Cross the Welland Canal aboard the Port Robinson Ferry

Bridge-it Ferry Service

The Port Robinson Ferry named Bridge-It

The Port Robinson Ferry, “Bridge-it”, is the only ferry service on the Welland Canal. The now accessible ferry has shuttled people across the Welland Canal since a laker collided with and destroyed the bridge to the hamlet in the 1970s.

The service provides a vital link for a growing number of cyclists and is a charming and memorable piece of Niagara’s cycling experience.
