Spend Less & Experience More

on Mackinac Island

The mackPASS is the best and most affordable way to make the most of your time on Mackinac Island. Why waste time in each and every line purchasing tickets for the attractions you want to see when you could have the ferry, carriage ride, forts, and butterflies all covered by one easy ticket?

Due to the seasonal nature of the area, all attractions (except ferry boat to Mackinac Island) close at the end of Fall and will reopen in the Spring (around Memorial Day).

You can purchase tickets for the 2023 year, starting in November.
