The Lake Express ferry makes its 2017 maiden voyage in less than four weeks.

Until then, check out this unique view from the boat.

Earlier this week, the ferry returned to its Lake Michigan home in Wisconsin. The Lake Express made its annual trip through downtown Milwaukee on the Menominee River.

In this video, which has obviously been sped up for timing purposes, you can see the ferry making its way through the city as it heads toward its dock on the lake.

It takes the ferry two-and-a-half hours to cross Lake Michigan.

The Lake Express will arrive at 9:30 a.m. April 28 in Muskegon.
