“Ferry to Mackinac”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Not sure what the difference is between each of the ferries to Mackinac. Star seemed to be just fine and got us to our destination. We happened to be on the one the goes under the Mackinac Bridge and then to the island. Only takes an extra 10 minutes and we got some great photos from under the bridge.

“Fast trip, lost the motion sickness!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

As a traveler who has to stay off of boats, pleasure cruises, sunset dinner rides, and such, I was happy to give this hydro-jet ride a try. I wasn't too thrilled at first, I should have waited to get on the boat last, but the exhilarating ride and speed of the boat allowed me to enjoy getting to this island destination for a day of sightseeing and fun shopping. I recommend this any day.
