Little Traverse Bay Ferry back in 2023

The Little Traverse Bay Ferry is back “for another round” in 2023, which is very exciting news.  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 will start in early summer, and they hope to keep the ferry in the water for as long as the weather allows. 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: 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. 

Enjoy the unique opportunity to arrive in the charming downtowns of Petoskey, Harbor Springs, or Bay Harbor in style aboard the 52-foot-long ferry boat. You can shop, eat, and explore without the hassle of driving or the frustration of finding parking for your car or boat. All you have to do is purchase a ticket, climb aboard, enjoy the spectacular views of Little Traverse Bay, and let us deliver you to one of the jewels in Northern Michigan’s crown.

So hop on board the Little Traverse Bay Ferry running this summer and fall, it’s the “fun way around the bay!”
