Are you ready for an island escape this summer? It is closer and more affordable than you think at Put-in-Bay! Travel by Miller Ferry to the island for an escape you and your family deserves this summer.
Riding the Miller Ferry to Put-in-Bay is more than just a means to get to the island, it has always been an adventure for my family. We love riding the boat across Lake Erie, watching the mainland disappear as we near the island. The ride always provides stunning views of Lake Erie as we escape from ordinary life to island life.
I received tickets to facilitate this post.
Miller Ferry leaves Port Clinton/Catawba every half hour in the summer, so it is easy to plan around for you and your family. Purchase affordable tickets at the ticket booth for you, your car, and bikes if you wish! Miller Ferry transports to both Put-in-Bay and Middle Bass Island.
As you can see, there is plenty of space on Miller Ferry for everyone – including cars, trucks, and people! Choose from indoor and outdoor seating.
We decided to stay on the lower deck on our trip for the chance to get a splash or two. My kids were screaming in delight! Splash Zone = Fun Zone on the Miller Ferry!
This is the view from the upper deck of the cars, bikes, and people below on the lower deck as we approach Put-in-Bay.
Up on the upper deck there is an open air area as well as an enclosed area with plenty of seats and happy smiles! We usually sit on top, every seat has a great view. When it is cooler at night or raining, the enclosed area is a perfect option. We’ve only used it a few times but I’m thankful there are so many options with Miller Ferry.
The boat ride from Port Clinton to Put-in-Bay is a quick 20 minutes. It is always a bit of a let down that it is already over since my family enjoys it so much but we appreciate the fast transport to the island as so much fun awaits at Put-in-Bay!
