The Walpole–Algonac Ferry serves the city of Algonac, Michigan, and the First Nation reserve of Walpole Island, and (indirectly), Wallaceburg, Ontario, via Highway 40 and Lambton County Road 32.

This ferry shares the same dock as the Russell Island Ferry to Russell Island (Michigan), but the latter ferry does not serve Walpole Island.

The Walpole–Algonac Ferry Line has been in operation for over 100 years. Operating out of Walpole Island (Ontario, Canada), the ferry crosses the St. Clair River to Algonac (Michigan, USA) and is the closest route between Detroit and Chatham/Wallaceburg/London/Toronto areas. The two-ferry operation (12 car and 9 car) runs daily, year-round (weather permitting), with a crossing time of approximately seven minutes.
