“Great trip”

Star Line Mackinac Island Hydro-Jet Ferry
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Jet powered trip took us under the bridge and then over to the island. Use their schedule to see which crossing will give you the bonus to go under the Mackinaw bridge (only certain ones do.) The company has 2 docks. Use the main one (not the railroad one) if you'd like to board first and sit on the top. Sitting on the outside *may* get you a bit wet!

It's a loud boat but you feel like James Bond when you look astern and see the huge rooster tail the boat throws up. Pretty quick ride too. Check the schedule as certain times the boat actually detours and goes under the Mackinaw Bridge which is pretty neat.

All the ferries to Macinac are about the same price, so we went with the fastest one with free overnight parking. Star Line is like riding in a speed boat, compared with the other pokey lines. We chose to leave out of the main dock in St Ignace and would do that again, as the lines of people headed to Mackinac City from the island were much longer than ours. Also noticed that the other ferry lines had boats that were more packed than Star's (more waiting). This crew is also very entertaining.

A smooth ride to and from the island. Only problem was the temp had dropped and with a small child, it was a tough ride back.
