The Star Line Ferry

Although Tawny has moved in with her grandparents on Mackinac Island, she often shuttles back and forth to the mainland at St. Ignace. In the novel, she and her mother travel on the Star Line Ferry. A popular choice of tourists, these ferries sport a large plume of water spraying out from the stern.  This distinct, playful touch can be spotted from miles away.

Star Line ferries and all ferry lines pick-up tourists at St. Ignace and Mackinac City.

Zooming across the Straits is one of the fun highlights of trips to the island.
