You Can Help Us Unite The Bay

Little Traverse Bay Ferry launched in the summer of 2020 and despite the restrictions of COVID-19, we were pleased to be able to service over 7000 riders! We still need financial support to help cover our startup costs for Summer 2021. 

Funding needed to complete: 

  • Docking fees for the season at all of the city harbors
  • Operational costs such as ferry maintenance, winter storage, summer preparation, licenses, and inspection fees

Donating helps cover these expenses to keep the Little Traverse Bay Ferry on the bay the proper way, and positively impact the community! Thank you so much for your consideration! 

Hop on board to keep this going for our community and our visitors!

The Little Traverse Bay Ferry Foundation, a non-profit, 501(c)3 entity, is a welcomed addition to the community utilizing the beautiful bay as a community space and uniting the ports of Petoskey, Bay Harbor, and Harbor Springs. It is by the people and for the people. There is strong public support from participating communities whereas the city councils of both Petoskey and Harbor Springs approved the ferry service unanimously. It has generated attention from not only supportive locals, but from around the Midwest as well. But there is still so much to do!
