Star Line Mackinac Island Hydro-Jet Ferry

Reviewed August 7, 2013

We chose to utilize the Star Line ferry from St. Ignace as part of our Experience Mackinac Island package, so we saved a few bucks each on passage. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the views positively amazing. Check the schedule ahead of time and make sure you try to catch one of the passages that makes the side trip underneath the Mackinac Bridge - it's truly an amazing experience and provides a different view of the bridge (as well as narrated info). The trip to the island and back was fast, and we would gladly use their service on our next visit to the island.

Free shuttle from local hotels. St. Ignace is less commercial than Mackinaw City. We took the ferry that went out to the bridge in the morning. Great views. Careful if you sit on top as you'll probably get wet if its been windy. All the ferries are about the same price. Free coffee too. The gift shop has quality sweatshirts and t-shirts for the best prices I've ever seen at a place with a "captive" audience. Crew was friendly and the ferries leave promptly as scheduled.

I can't complain about Starline. The boats left on schedule, the rates were competitive with Arnold's and Shepler's. Everyone was friendly. If you leave at 9:30a or 10:00a they even make a trip under the bridge. Book on-line and save $. We basically got one free ticket trip by booking online.

Fast travel and friendly staff make this ferry service a great choice when traveling to Mackinac Island. We left from the St. Ignace main dock. Be advised that this ferry also stops at the St. Ignace railroad dock both coming and going but the stop is short. Convenient parking on the mainland and a great dock location on the Island. Can't go wrong with this ferry service.
