June, July, & August, 2021

Celebrate on the S.S. Badger carferry by taking one…or all five…shoreline cruises 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! Five 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.

Visiting Port Manitowoc, Wisconsin

Manitowoc is a community of roughly 35,000 and rich in maritime history and is the lone Wisconsin port for the S.S. Badger carferry. Manitowoc was ranked #2 by Forbes Magazine for “Best Small Cities to Raise a Family.” The downtown area is within walking distance of the carferry port where you can shop, catch a movie or dine in one of the local restaurants. Enjoy a leisurely bike ride or hike on the Mariner’s Trail, a seven mile trail that runs along Lake Michigan. There are numerous other things to do in and around the Manitowoc area.
