The History Of The Jet Express
The Jet Express Ferry is a high-speed ferry service that departs from Port Clinton and Sandusky, Ohio, providing speedy and convenient transportation to several popular Lake Erie destinations. With a travel time of as little as 25 minutes for the 12-mile trip between Port Clinton and Put-in-Bay, the Jet Express is one of the fastest ferries on the lake.
The company was founded in 1988 as the Put-in-Bay Boat Line Co. “The Jet Express” by four partners, and today, the majority owner and President is Todd Blumensaadt. The company started with a brand new 3 million water-jet powered catamaran, the Jet Express, and soon added the Jet Express II in 1992, Jet Express III in 2002, and Jet Express IV in 2009.
All four of the Jet Express vessels were built by the Gladdin-Hearn Shipbuilding Company in Somerset, Massachusetts.
The Jet Express service has expanded from its original Port Clinton to Put-in-Bay route to include Sandusky (2005) and Lorain (2009) as regular ports of call, with service to Kelley’s Island (2006), Put-in-Bay, and Cedar Point (2016).
The company also offers Excursion Adventure Cruises, which are theme-based and visit various US and Canadian ports throughout Lake Erie and its tributaries.
Overall, the Jet Express fleet provides a reliable and efficient transportation option for those seeking to explore the Lake Erie region. With its modern vessels and expanded route offerings, the Jet Express is a top choice for travelers looking to experience the beauty and excitement of this popular destination.
