Interstate I-75 brings you to the ferry docks of both Mackinaw City (Lower Peninsula) and St. Ignace (Upper Peninsula). Access to the island can be made from both of these cities. The exits are clearly marked for several miles.
All season long, Mackinac Island is serviced from both of these cities by three ferry companies: Arnold Transit, Shepler’s Ferry, and Star line Ferry. Each has their own fleet of high speed ferries that can take passengers from port to island in less than half an hour.
Pellston Airport is serviced by Delta Airlines and is approximately fifteen miles from the island. Mackinaw Shuttle Services and Wolverine Stages are located in the main terminal of the airport to provide ground transportation to the ferries headed towards the island. Additionally, Great Lakes Air is a full service, affordable passenger and freight charter service that offers a 7 minute flight from St. Ignace to Mackinac Island.
