June, July, and August, 2022

Celebrate on the S.S. Badger Carferry by taking one or all four of the shoreline cruises offered this year. It’s a guaranteed fun time for all!

If you’ve never taken a trip across Lake Michigan aboard the S.S. Badger, start small and take a Shoreline Cruise! Four of these fun excursions are planned for this summer, each one lasting two hours. It’s time to join in the festivities and celebrate this grand ship. For all cruises, tickets are non-refundable but are transferable. The ticket price does not include the security fee. Kids under five are always free. No passes will be accepted for the shoreline cruises, and they go on rain or shine. Tickets must be purchased in advance by stopping in at the Manitowoc or Ludington ticket offices or by calling (800) 841-4243.
