    Default That ferry out of Milwaukee??

    Going back over my last trip, and all the requests I made prior to it, I read once again of the ferry from Milwaukee to Michigan. I have also noticed Michael mention this in posts in other members' threads.

    But could someone please tell me the name of this ferry, or give me a link to a web site. I am blowed if I can work out which it is when I 'google'. Am planning to take it on route from St Paul to Detroit.

    As always, thanking you in anticipation.

    Lifey who is doing far too much planning

    Default Lake Michigan Ferries

    The Milwaukee based Ferry is the Lake Express. It is the "high speed" ferry, crossing from Milwaukee to Muskegon Michigan in about 2.5 hours. Interesting that you ask about it, because today is actually the first day of its 2011 season. (If you are looking to travel in late March as you mentioned in a different post, you're going to be too early to use it.)

    The other Lake Michigan Ferry is the SS Badger which goes from Manitowoc WI to Ludington, MI. That ferry takes about 4 hours.

    I will say they are both rather expensive although the Badger tends to be a little bit cheaper. Since they charge for both a vehicle and per person, it can be especially expensive for anyone traveling as a family or group.

    Well, that puts an end to that then.

    Back to square one!
