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 two ferry companies: Shepler’s Ferry and Star Line Mackinac Island Hydro-Jet Ferry. Each company offers a unique fleet of ferry experiences.

Pellston Airport is serviced by Sky West (Delta) and is approximately fifteen miles from the island. Mackinaw Shuttle Services is located in the main terminal of the airport to provide ground transportation to the ferries headed towards the island.

Chippewa County Airport is about 30 minutes from the ferry docks in St. Ignace. This airport offers the convenience of a smaller airport with state of the art facilities and security.

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. Fresh Air Aviation also services the Island with private aircraft charters.
