Considered a national historic landmark passengers walk aboard with a smile on their faces and adventure in their hearts.

“What’s really fun and special about the Badger is that it gives parents and grandparents an opportunity to slow down with their children and explain a little bit of the history of the shipping industry that’s on the Great Lakes,” Veen says.
