Great experience from start to finish!
Bridget B. · October 20, 2016
This was a wonderful trip, and if you have not been on the Badger, I would encourage you to take a trip! We went over on a sunny fall day, and it was wonderful to sit in the still warm sun, and look out at Lake Michigan. The staff was friendly and helpful. Todd the Entertainer had such corny jokes that were actually funny! The popcorn is the best on the Great lakes ! A really neat experience

It was very well organized. The Groupon worked out well and very cost efficient. The only drawback was the food was rather cold.

About "S.S. Badger" Lake Michigan CarFerry


While the S.S. Badger has been honored as a National Historic Landmark, its beginnings were humble. First setting sail in 1953, the Badger originally carried railcars, along with a few select passengers, across scenic Lake Michigan. Now the last of the Great Lakes's coal-fired steamships, the 410-foot vessel ships cargo of a different kind, transporting guests and their vehicles across Lake Michigan with the comforts and amenities of a modern cruise ship, with ongoing efforts to improve their ship environmentally.

While the boat sails between Ludington, Michigan and Manitowoc, Wisconsin, guests amble through the open deck for views of the scenic shorelines or set up shop on deck chairs, armed with a cool drink and a Mermaid-to-English dictionary. The ship’s shaded interior entertains with movies, guests shouting at celebratory bingo, and arcade games giving off musical tones as kids set new high scores. For a more muted ride, private staterooms let guests snooze away the hours, and a quaint museum elucidates the ship’s history in hushed solitude. An in-house bar blends, shakes, and stirs ingredients into a range of refreshing cocktails, while the café showcases artfully crafted sandwiches like a deli hall of fame.
