I don't often think of reviewing a mode of travel. After all, what one is going TO is what is of most interest when on vacation; right? Perhaps, but here's the thing - sometimes something or someone just makes you blink, think and then want ink something to let complete strangers who went out of their way for you -... More

It's a ferry service so not much to report. The staff is excellent - very friendly and helpful. Decent way to get to the island.

Very convenient ferry to the island going to and from the island all day until 10pm, with a cruise almost every half hour. A nice cruise lasting about 30 minutes to the island and you could return at any other given time.

I love boats, especially fast ones and this was great. We were told to take the "express" ferry as the other one takes 45 minutes to get to the island. While we had waits on both ends, the ride and the island trip made it worth the wait!!

Star Line has never let me down before and still continues to provide a wonderful ferry service. The boats are quick get you over the island from the St. Ignace side in about 15 minutes. The rooster tail is cool to watch especially if you have kids. Star Line offers really good times in the summer which is almost every... More

We were indifferent on ferries -- it just so happened the star line was the one our campground shuttle took us to. A quick search on our phones revealed some online coupons on their website. We asked the ticket tender at the dock if she'd honor the coupon we saw online -- she did with no hesitation. The boats seemed... More

The Star staff was efficient and friendly. The schedule and instructions were clear. They offer a couple of destination revisions to include a trip under the Mackinaw Bridge (Same cost) but trip to and from the Island is extended. Check their schedule. The also give a 'military discount' so keep your ID card handy ... you deserve it and they... More

We go to Mackinac Island twice a summer, every year. And we wouldn't trust our travel to anyone but Star Line. Besides having a safe record, they have very good on-line coupons that can be purchased before you go. Great family discounts. The boat is clean, on time and very friendly and helpful staff. Just this year, they have gone... More
