This passenger ferry line offers the largest ferries to Mackinac Island. They have a fleet of three triple-decked Catamaran ferries. The ride takes less than 20 minutes. Ferries depart about every hour. Round trip rates are $17 per adult, $8 per child ages 5 to 12 and free for children under 5. Bikes cost an extra $6.50. Leashed pets are allowed but you will need to show proof of current rabies vaccine (dog tag) and current license (dog tag). These large ferries offer the most room for pets versus the other ferries. Restroom and handicap facilities are available on all ferries. Parking at the dock is free for one day but overnight costs $1 to $15 per night. To get to the docks, follow the red, green and white signs to the Arnold Line Docks in Mackinaw City or St. Ignace.
