The Beaver Island Boat Company has been offering ferry service for over 25 years to Beaver Island Michigan - America's Emerald Isle. Each year their ferries make approximately 375 round trips to the island, travel over 24,000 miles, transport over 40,000 passengers, carry around 6,500 vehicles and approximately 15,000 tons of freight to the island - making this service a lifeline for many islanders.
