Your Luggage & Transportation
Horse Drawn Carriage & Shuttle Service
With every ferry that pulls into the harbor there is a hotel shuttle that transports guests & luggage to the resort. This service is estimated at $7.00, per person, and cash is paid directly to the driver. For special requests please call Mackinac Island Carriage Tours Taxi at 906-847-3323. This service is not owned, or operated, by Mission Point Resort.
