Shepler's Mackinac Island Ferry says it's waiting to see the effect of icebreaking operations in the Straits of Mackinac before posting a schedule for this season.

Right now, ice is blocking the Straits except the shipping channel. The U.S. Coast Guard will be breaking ice on Thursday and Friday.

Shepler's says they will be starting the 2014 season in St. Ignace instead of Mackinaw City and operations will begin as soon as the ice conditions permit.

Daily updates will be posted on its Facebook page starting April 21.
