Known as the “Lake Michigan Shortcut“, the journey is 80 miles each way.

If you were to do this same trip by car, it would take 280 miles and you would have to drive through the always-hellishly-busy traffic of Chicago.

If you’d like to cross as a pedestrian, you can park your car at either terminal for $5.00 per day.

There are two types of passenger cabins: Classic and Premier.

Currently, the rates for an adult round-trip ticket are Classic ($165.00) or Premier ($211.00).

The Lake Express ferry transports over 100,000 passengers annually.
