Wonderful day on Mackinac Island, the boat ride over was fantastic and one really needs to spend 2 or 3 days here to take it all in. If you can afford it, stay overnight on the island. There are dozens of packages available, it will...More

My boyfriend and I enjoyed the ferry very much and actually preferred the classic ferry versus the hydro jet. However the woman inside and the front desk/ticket sales was very unhelpful. She sold us tickets to the classic ferry and did not even inform us...More

Unless you own a boat, or can afford a plane, you're going to need a ferry ride to get you to Mackinac Island. Star Line is one of two services you can take, and while they are about the same, running at similar frequencies, the...More

Typically the last ferry from St. Ignace to Mackinac Island on a weeknight in September is around 6pm. Our schedule changes from year to year, and the 2017 schedule will be released in late winter to early spring. Thanks!
