We have taken the Star Line ferry several times and have always found it to be reliable. It was nice to have shuttle service to our hotel and back and the shuttle was very prompt and even waited for me!

Great boat with fun upper deck. My boys (2 and 7) were excited to take a detour under the Mackinac Bridge on the way to the island!

We had to wait over an hour at the Railroad Dock in St Ignace for a Ferry. The staff are very slow and not helpful, bordering on rude. No explanation for the lack of ferry boats to match the posted schedule. We will use any...More

It is what it is. An overpriced boat ride a few miles to the island. What are your options? Made several stops around the u.p. Mackinac Island was my absolute least favorite. Way way way overpriced, not that fun, crowded and crazy expensive in every...More

I have no idea how fast the ferry is, I went from Mackinaw to Mackinac Island in about 15 minutes.
