Little Traverse Bay Ferry
The Little Traverse Bay Ferry is back “for another round” in 2021, which is very exciting news. Launching last year during a pandemic was not easy, but the ferry still weathered that storm and served up 7,200 passengers during the season. Bay Harbor Lake Marina will once again be the
ferry’s home port, with schedules throughout the day to Petoskey and Harbor Springs.
They will run the boat 7 days a week and the official tickets sales for the season start in late June, and they hope to keep the ferry in the water for as long as the weather allows. This summer, they will not be scheduling rides on Saturday evenings, and will instead open it up for private charters and
sunset cruises (weather permitting). Food and drinks are allowed on the ferry as well, which makes this a fun new adventure out on beautiful Little Traverse Bay to spend with family and friends.
Reservations are strongly encouraged, and can be purchased on their website: littletraversebayferry.org. Please note that they will take passengers that have not reserved a seat in advance, but they only accept payment by card or via your smart phone. Bikes are also allowed on the ferry, but be sure to note that when you are buying your ticket online to reserve space for your bike as well. Pets are also allowed, as long
as they are on a leash. The Ferry also has non-alcoholic drinks and chips on board for sale for a little snack as you cruise across the water.
So hop on board the Little Traverse Bay Ferry running seasonally, it’s the “fun way around the bay!”
