Star Line Mackinac Island Hydro-Jet Ferry

Attraction details
Reviewed September 2, 2007

We took the Star Line round trip to Mackinac Island and back on Sept 2, 2007. Cost was about $65 fpr 2 adults and 1 child.

Ship leaves about every half hour or so. We bought our tickets at 9am and got right on. It is about a 20 minute trip to the island. Great views of the lake, the bridge, and the island.

On the return trip, we boarded about 5 minutes after we arrived.

We sat on the upper deck both times. On the ride back, the water was rougher in the afternoon but the boat handled the waves well. There was a lot of spray off the lake and we got pretty soaked (the kids thought this was great fun).

The only reason we really chose this ferry line was because it was the first one we came to. We liked it very much and would ride it again.

On Monday evenings Starline Ferry has a sunset cruise. Don't miss this if you visit the Island on a Monday! The price is a bargain- only $15 per person for about an hour and a half of beautiful scenery, including close up looks at the area lighthouses as well as cruising right under the Mackinac Bridge!
The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and went out of their way to make the trip fun.
We were staying on the island, but they also pick people up in St.Ignace for the cruise.
The website says to make reservations, and we were happy we did, because the ferry seemed to be about full.
