Take A Mini Cruise Along Lake Michigan

 

The SS BADGER Crew is excited to start the 2022 season on May 12th. Still making her relaxing, fun, and memorable voyage from Ludington, Michigan, and Manitowoc, Wisconsin. For those who want a taste of the BADGER without the cross-lake commitment, try a Shoreline Cruise that departs and returns to the same port. These two-hour “mini” cruises pack a punch — spectacular views along the Lake Michigan shoreline plus the fun atmosphere of being onboard the SS BADGER! 

With multiple Shoreline Cruises to choose from this summer, there is bound to be something for everyone!
