Mr Monkey was right about the ferry being ready to go. As soon as they'd bought their tickets, Mr Rik and Miss Carol were told to scamper as fast as possible to the other end of the ferry terminal, where someone took the tickets back, and let them aboard the ferry.
You can read about Ward's Island, the ferry, and the other Toronto Islands at the Toronto Harbour website.
