Deep Water Port Attracts Cruise Ships & High Speed Ferry

In addition to the Lake Express Ferry, the Muskegon Port welcomes the Pearl Mist and Victory Cruise Ships. Muskegon attracts large vessels including private yachts for many reasons:

  • Muskegon Lake is nearly 80 ft. deep in some areas, making our port easily accessible for cruise ships.
  • Arts and cultural attractions are within walking distance.
  • The Great Lakes is named one of the top 3 cruise ship destinations in the world!
  • The Port of Muskegon welcomes cruise ships through its beautiful channel.

  • Day trips to downtown Muskegon, to interact with cruise ship passengers
  • Experience what the cruise ship passengers are experiencing by taking a trip through the Heritage District. Click Here to view a map.
  • Wonderful viewing opportunities to see the ship coming into or leaving through the Muskegon Channel.
