Horne's Ferry & Owner Are Back For New Season


Maybe it's the way the engine hits the water or the calm feeling you get watching the waves.

Whatever it is it keeps George Horne coming back to his ferry in Cape Vincent.

"A day like this you get to enjoy the, I like being outdoors, I get to play boat," said Horne.

It's a great start to the season for Horne and his ferry business.

Last fall, Horne's Ferry had to close early for the season after Horne suffered a heart attack when a vehicle rolled off his boat.
Now Horne's Ferry is back to normal operating seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Workers and passengers are excited about a new season of trips between Cape Vincent and Wolfe Island, Ontario.

"I'm glad things are back on track here," said ferry deckhand Edward Coffey.

"This is an adventure. It's a family adventure," said Stephen Gardner, a ferry passenger.

Horne says one of the best parts about being up and running again is all the people that have come out to see him.

"People are coming to see how I am. I can't believe people are concerned about me," said Horne.
