North of the Tension Wires
Just a few miles off the tip of the Door County peninsula lies Washington Island. A friendly year-round home to 700 people, the island is also an enchanting destination for thousands of visitors each year. The Washington Island Ferry Line is the vital transportation link across storied Death’s Door passage. Reaching the north end of Highway 42, a new world appears as travelers are greeted by the Northport ferry pier and a magnificent view of adventures ahead. As the ferry landing nears, an enjoyable visit to the 35-square-mile historic community awaits.
