Lake Express ferry spring sailing season starts May 1
High-speed ferry makes four daily trips from Milwaukee to Muskegon, MI across Lake Michigan in two-and-a-half hours
MILWAUKEE -- It's "all aboard" as the Lake Express begins the 2014 sailing season Thursday on Lake Michigan.
The high-speed ferry makes four daily trips from Milwaukee to Muskegon, Michigan, across Lake Michigan in two-and-a-half hours. More daily trips will be added to the schedule this summer.
Aaron Schultz with Lake Express says it's more than just a boat ride, and says it's a first-class experience, comparable to airline-style accommodations.
"There's a lot more room, there's a cafe on board, you can watch a movie or go outside and enjoy the lake," Schultz said.
The ship can hold 46 cars are 12 motorcycles. Schultz said the ferry is a great way travelers heading to Michigan to avoid driving in congested traffic.
