Getting to mackinac island: how to ride the ferry

By Katie Wittry

As soon as we pulled up to the Ferry Docks Entrance there were team members there to tell us exactly where to go.

Unloading luggage was super easy and stress free. They put everything on luggage carts. 

You can purchase ferry tickets ahead of time online or right at the ferry dock. Tickets can be used any day or time.

During the busy summer season, the ferry runs about every 15 minutes. Check the schedule for most up to date times. It leaves as early as 7:30am.

Ferry ride takes about 20 minutes. 

Find a seat when you board. You can sit up outside on the top of the ferry or inside down below.
