The United States Coast Guard ICEBREAKER MACKINAW WAGB-83 is known as the “Queen of the Great Lakes” and “The Largest Icebreaker on the Great Lakes”. She was built as part of the war effort during World War II to meet the heavy demands of war materials and transportation during the winter months. Decommissioned in 2006, she now resides at her namesake home of Mackinaw City, Michigan

  • I was a YN2 stationed at St.Ignace (across the bridge) at the USCG OCMI in 1963/64. Have seen Mackinaw at Mackinaw City 2 or 3 years ago before it was refurbed for museum use. Love the USCG and the time I served in it.

  • My dad was from Mackinaw City and I always loved seeing the bridge. There was wonderful view of the bridge from my grandmother’s back yard. I love it!
