Sailings resume May 5, 2023
Offering the most daily crossings and record-setting speed, Lake Michigan’s high speed auto ferry offers a convenient and easy to use modern shortcut across Lake Michigan. Leave the hassles of Chicago traffic congestion behind when you ride the Lake Express ferry.
Typical Lake Michigan crossings on the Lake Express take just 2-1/2 hours from coast-to-coast, a fraction of the time it would take to drive.
The Lake Express crosses Lake Michigan 4 times daily during its spring and summer schedule. With the addition of evening sailings during its summer schedule, the Lake Express makes 6 Lake Michigan crossings daily during the height of the summer travel season.
With easy and convenient highway connections in Milwaukee (I-94 and I-43) and Muskegon (I-96 and US-31), the Lake Express is the perfect way to fast forward to your preferred destination in Michigan, Wisconsin or beyond.
