All public docks including B dock which are located in the central harbor are linear docks. There is a finger on the south west end, close to the shoreline to accommodate smaller boats. These Put-in-Bay Docks were constructed in 2001 and are the only Put-in-Bay Docks catering to small boats that also have electric service and lighted docks. In order to accommodate the largest amount of boats, all docks in the central harbor require rafting at the discretion of the dock-master up to four boats deep.
The dock-master on each of the Put-in-Bay Docks will attempt to group boats close to the same size to maximize available space for boaters.
Every attempt is made to match boats of similar sizes to safely provide the maximum the amount of dockage available to our visitors. The dock assignments are controlled by the dock-master on duty and reservations are not accepted. When you enter the harbor you should hail B Dock on the hailing marine channel #9. The dock-master acknowledge you and have you switch to marine channel #68 to talk about your Put-in-Bay Docks assignment and directions. Payment is required upon arrival. Detailed below are the current rates for the “B” pier of the Put-in-Bay Docks.
Daily Approximately $0.90 A foot
