My wife and I are considering a trip to Mackinac Island in late June. We would be coming from Maryland by way of flying in to Grand Rapids. Do your boats ever sell out of space? On my day of departure, I need to be confident that I can get on your merry and allow for enough drive time back to Grand Rapids to make my flight. Any suggestions???
