Weather delays opening day.

Due to inclement weather, including late season ice conditions, Shepler’s regrets to announce a delayed opening date change for the 2018 navigational season.  We will [tentatively] begin operating regularly scheduled passenger service [weather depending] on Wednesday, April 25.  This date is entirely dependent on continued weather developments.  We encourage you to revisit this page daily for updates, or follow our social channels.  We apologize for this change, however it is entirely beyond our control as the safety and security of our passengers is our utmost concern.  Please note that our main offices in both Mackinaw City and St. Ignace will now be open daily (9am-5pm).  We encourage guests to direct questions to 800.828.6157 or info@sheplersferry.com.  Guests may also DM us via facebook, twitter, or IG.  Once again, we truly apologize for this announcement and we appreciate your understanding.  All aboard after the ice melts!!
