Star line provides quick and clean service to Mackinac. You really can't go wrong heading to the island. Sad the Arnold Line is gone, but the crew at Star is friendly and professional

Ride was fine but did not run anywhere near on schedule. Had to wait an hour for the boat out and were glad we left when we did. The deckhand said the next ferry would not be leaving for an hour and a half!

Yes, you may bring your dog(s) on the ferry as long as it is on a leash and under control. Most businesses on the Island do not allow dogs into their establishments unless they are seeing eye dogs. Also, by city ordinance... More

Typically the last ferry from St. Ignace to Mackinac Island on a weeknight in September is around 6pm. Our schedule changes from year to year, and the 2017 schedule will be released in late winter to early spring. Thanks!
