Great ride
Oct 2021 • Couples
Great ride. Fast and great views. Everything went smooth. Luggage was tagged and ready when you got to the island. Find the porters and they will bring it to your hotel for $3per bag

Another foggy day
Oct 2021
We’ve picked early hours to get to the ferry, to be able to get closer to the bridge and take some nice photos.
It supposed to be a little bit longer way, where the ferry goes under the bridge, making u-turn and go to Mackinac Island.
Again, we were screwed up because of the weather as day before.
Our boat went closer to the bridge, but we could see NOTHING!
When arrived to the Island, weather was still foggy. I knew it should change later. At least in this case I was right.
There was a lot of people getting on the ferry in Mackinaw City. So. not only we were screwed....
Good thing was, that our hotel was right by the Star Line dock, so we've walked to the ferry.
I definitely recommend this trip, and I hope there will be better weather for you.

Great
Oct 2021
The ride over was under the bridge - cool. Coming back it was like riding a roller coaster - wow he was heavy duty speeding to be back to the mainland. But they offered the military discount sicne I am military vet and that was awesome. Will do that ferry again cuz I liked going under the bridge.

The enclosed middle deck seating was comfortable and a great place to ride with small children. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Parking not free
Oct 2021 • Couples
Web says free parking. After parking, was told the ‘Free’ parking is offsite. This isn’t clear when you arrive. Web should point that out and it should be obvious when you pull in.

Rude dock employee
Oct 2021
checked our luggage prior to 3:00 PM on Friday 10/8/21. Luggage didn't arrive until 5:30. When asking for an explanation from an employee at the dock (white shirt) at Mackinac I he said I was on vacation and should enjoy it. I pressed him further, he said he was the boss and didn't much care about my luggage.

Very nice way to get to Mackinac Island
Sep 2021
This boat was right next to my hotel so it made it a no-brainer. Easy and quick boarding and departure both that Mackinac city and Mackinac Island. We were dressed to sit in the upper deck which was very enjoyable but it eventually got too cold and we went inside, and of September 2021. Very nice and accommodating deckhands.
