Passenger Ferry Service:
Coming soon – NEW PASSENGER FERRY SERVICE – Website coming soon (mid February). Expected start date for new boat service is May 6, 2020.
Will have a more convenient schedule for overnight guests visiting Stehekin, departing Field’s Point at 1pm to head uplake. Will also get you back to your car by 12:30pm to head home. This boat will also make flag stops by reservation at Prince Creek and Lucerne. Park at Field’s Point Landing to catch this boat.
Lady of the Lake
The Lake Chelan Boat Company operates 2 passenger ferry boats on Lake Chelan. Both boats can be boarded at either their home dock in Chelan, or at Field’s Point landing – approx. 20 miles uplake on the south shore. The Lady Express Boat travels the 50 miles between Chelan and Stehekin in 2 hours, with minimal stops along the way. The Lady II takes nearly 4 hours, making several additional stops along the way to drop off and pick up passengers at Prince Creek, Lucerne, Moore Point, and other flag stops.
Which boat should you take?
We recommend taking the STEHEKIN FERRY or the LADY EXPRESS.
(Coming Soon) The Stehekin Ferry will pick you up at Field’s Point at 1pm – a great option for those with a long drive. You will be met at the Stehekin dock at 2:45pm, and be brought to the Ranch in time to settle in or even take an eBike out for a spin before dinner.
The Lady Express heads up the lake from Chelan at 8:30am, and will arrive in Stehekin at 11am. Our bus will meet you there to bring you the last 9 miles to the Ranch. This option gives you the afternoon to start exploring the Stehekin Valley.
Stehekin Valley Ranch is situated 9 miles up the valley, so be sure not to miss your ride!
If you decide to take the Lady II boat, be prepared to wait a short time, as we are not able to meet this boat when it comes in. You will not get lunch at the Ranch, and the next bus is 2pm.
