The Lake Express ferry, a Port Milwaukee tenant, made history as the first high speed auto passenger ferry in the United States on June 1, 2004 when it re-established the historic Lake Michigan route between Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Muskegon, Michigan. Crossing Lake Michigan in just 2-1/2 hours, the Lake Express established new standards for Great Lakes ferry service, cutting hours from previous record crossing times and hours from the typical trip around Lake Michigan through Chicago’s congested tollway system.

The modern Lake Express launched with a full complement of modern conveniences and amenities not available elsewhere. Since that first crossing, Lake Express has continued to set standards for Lake Michigan, offering daily sailings and the longest operating season on Lake Michigan.  Take the Lake Express ferry on your next trip! Discover the freedom, relaxation and convenience that comes when you leave driving behind.
