Boarding the Chi-Cheemaun
August 7, 2013
It was still raining when we boarded the Chi-Cheemaun that would take us from South Baymouth to Tobermory. Boarding is quite impressive! The vehicles are lined into rows on the dock then each row proceeds into the ferry as directed. Once inside and parked, passengers are instructed to lock their vehicles and proceed to the upper deck, cafeteria or lounge for the hour and forty-five minute journey.
Boarding completed without a problem. We were one of the first loaded so made our way to the second floor lounge. The lower level cafeteria was open so many enjoyed a snack en route. The upper lounge is enclosed with ample seating, rest rooms and tourist information. Towards the front of the lounge gives the best view of the journey as it is over the bow of the vessel. There is a open deck around the lounge for viewing as well as an outdoor seating area. We went out for pictures but it was too cold and rainy to stay out.
