Lake Express Ferry launches 2021 season

Muskegon County

MUSKEGON, Mich. (WOOD) — The Lake Express Ferry got back underway Friday.

The pandemic shorted the ferry’s 2020 season. This year, it is beginning on time.

“Now as we’ve learned for a year, we’ve learned and we’ve worked with the (U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) guidelines, we can keep safe distancing. Obviously with everybody being vaccinated, too, there’s a lot that different this year,” Lake Express Ferry Senior Vice President Aaron Schultz said. “It’s a return closer to normal and we’re excited and enthusiastic that by mid-summer, I think, we’re going to be really into the swing of things.”

The high-speed ferry links Muskegon and Milwaukee and generally crosses Lake Michigan four times each day. During high-traffic days between June 17 and Sept. 6, it may make as many as six crossings.

Protocols to limit the spread of coronavirus are being observed onboard.

You can go to or call 866.914.1010 to get tickets.
