Modern speed, comfort and convenience - only on the Lake Express
LAKE MICHIGAN'S HIGH SPEED FERRYWith top speed exceeding 40 mph, the modern Lake Express high speed ferry is more than twice as fast as any other ferry to cross Lake Michigan.
THE GREAT LAKES EXPERIENCEThe Great Lakes, sometimes referred to as the third coast of the United States, boast the largest body of freshwater in the world. Experience sunrise or sunset and the vast expanse of an inland sea from the deck of the nation's first high speed auto/passenger ferry.
SAVE HOURS Vs. DRIVINGJust 2-1/2 hours from coast to coast between Wisconsin and Michigan. Leave road construction, tolls and unpredicatable Chicago traffic behind as you avoid 270+ miles of driving.
MODERN ON-SHIP AMENITIESWhy settle for less? Enjoy climate controlled passenger cabins featuring first class seating, cafe service and movies. Wide roomy aisles allow you room to roam and large windows allow great Lake Michigan views from the comfort of your seat.
BUILT FOR CARS, NOT CARGO, BUSES OR SEMI TRUCKSLake Express caters exclusively to automobile and motorcycle travelers, making it easy and convenient to travel with your vehicle. Only Lake Express puts you in the driver's seat and on the road within minutes of arriving in port. Others make you wait as long as an hour for your vehicle to be unloaded by a crew member. We prioritize passengers and automobiles over semis, freight and other oversized loads. Don't wait for trucks, buses and cargo to unload first.
