It’s a sure sign that summer isn’t too far away: the Quyon Ferry is open for business today.

The cable ferry, which runs on the Ottawa River between Quyon, Que. and near Fitzroy Harbour, Ont., is open as of 5:30 a.m. Friday.

It’s the largest electric ferry on the Ottawa River and leaves a dock every 10 minutes.

Last year the ferry opened on March 23.
