Shepler's is the must ride ferry to Mackinac Island. EXCELLENT customer services - all employees were extremely friendly and accommodating.
If you buy your tickets online you will receive around $2 discount/ticket or a free child ticket with the purchase of 2 adults. (The promotions may change from time to time - see the website to get the latest one).
We also bought tickets for our bikes at $8/ticket. If you have a bike and a way of getting it up north, bring your own bike - it is the way to go! The staff makes it easy - they take your bike and load it on the ship and brins if off so it is ready for you when you get off in Mackinac. The Shepler's ticket window in Mackinaw City also has bike maps for the island. If you bring your own bike, pick a map up from the Shepler's in Mackinaw City and you will be able avoid the bike rental places when you get to the island.
From start to finish, the Shepler's facilities are nice, clean and look better than the competitors. I will certainly only take Shepler's!
Lastly, Shepler's offers returning ferries later than competitors - check out there website for the complete schedule as it varies by season.
You know if the Grand Hotel uses Shepler's for their guests that it must be the way to go!
