The Local Motion Island Line Bike Ferry is a world-class experience crossing "the Cut" between South Hero and Colchester. This bike ferry holds a regular schedule during the summer months and ferries cyclists and pedestrians across from one side to the other. Champ sitings occur more often in the fall but it isn't unusual for the captain to have a Champ story or two for visitors. The ferry operates from fees, memberships, and donated support for all who believe maybe not just in Champ but in the lifelong joy of a bike ride.
