Season Extended for the S.S. Badger

Posted: Updated:

Many people in Michigan take advantage of taking the S.S. Badger across Lake Michigan, but right now it's focus is cargo.

The ferry docks in Ludington once it makes the trip across Lake Michigan.

It's been carrying General Electric wind turbine towers from Manitowoc, Wisconsin.

The S.S. Badger's season will be extended because of an agreement with GE to carry the cargo across the lake.

Their season normally ends in mid-October but will now run until November 2nd.

Passengers and their vehicles will also benefit, getting a 40% discount on the regular fare during the extension.

The season may be extended even more if there are any delays or weather issues.
