Stand Up Paddle Board Rentals

Stand-up Paddleboards are another fantastic way to transit Lake Erie. Ocean Kayak brand Nalu boards are easy to use but can take some training. Good balance is important; most people can get comfortable with a few short trial periods.

Reservations are taken in the mornings, while afternoons are on a first-come, first-served basis.

Put-in-Bay Watercraft Rentals offers boats for rent as well. You and your group can rent a 12’ foot 25HP and 15’ foot (40HP)boat. Fun for the entire family.

Primary draws there include Perry's Victory & International Peace Memorial, South Bass Island State Park, South Bass Island Lighthouse, Perry's Cave Family Fun Center, Put-in-Bay Antique Car Museum, as well as wineries and Stone Cove Beach. There are a number of eateries in the town. If using Miller Boat Line and planning to tour the island, I suggest not taking your vehicle as the wait can be very long. Options are hiring a taxi or pedicab or renting a bicycle, moped, or golf cart for 4, 6, or 8 people. The 4-person golf carts are $60 on weekdays and $70 on weekends. Expensive! Other options include a tour train and a one-destination bus.

One of the highlights of our tour to Put-in-Bay was renting Put-in-Bay Jet Ski Rentals. We used a company called Put-in-Bay Watercraft Rentals at the South Bass Island State Park. The water was a pleasant 82 degrees that day, and the Jet Ski Rentals was a blast.

If you are just going to the downtown zone for eateries and stores, there is the bus that runs from the Miller dock to the downtown village area for $3.00 each way and puts you within a short walk to Perry's Victory & International Peace Memorial.

The ferry was wheelchair accessible, and transportation options once on South Bass Island could be very restricted, depending on your mobility limitations. There is no shortage of Put-in-Bay Hotels or locations to dine on the island.

Since I had only one full day at Put-in-Bay, I focused on South Bass Island Lighthouse and Perry's Victory & International Peace Memorial because I'm a chronicler and a lighthouse preservationist. I also left plenty of time for researching, people-watching, relaxing, and dining in the town.

We had such a great time! I took my son with me to South Bass Island during the week. We brought the Miller Ferry from Catawba. They have complimentary parking close by. You will pass parking areas charging up to $5.00 before getting to the free parking. The ferry frequently runs during the summer, so we had only a short wait time for the next ferry. Based on another person's review, we rented our golf cart from Put-in-Bay Golf Carts online before we arrived. They were wonderful. Leasing a golf cart was the most reasonable way to visit the island. Parking can be problematic in the village but have patience. We had a lot of pleasure driving around the middle of the town, looking for a parking place. Perry's Monument was incredible. We had our national park credentials, so we could get in free; otherwise, taking the elevator to the top was $3.00 per individual. The views were amazing! Stop in the national park headquarters to watch the short film about the Battle of Lake Erie. I also agree with another critic that if you are family-oriented, go during the week. Prices are less than on busy weekends. We rented Jet Ski Rentals from Put-in-Bay Watercraft Rentals had a blast zipping about the lake.

A must-visit place with Jet Ski Rentals! This is a fun and exciting location to see. It is just a quick ferry ride to the island from the Port Clinton location. There are numerous items to do there. They have plenty of stores for shopping along with eateries and pubs to cater to all travelers. The state park is excellent for relaxing, and they have bathrooms readily available. You can rent a golf cart or bike to get around. We rented out Jet Skis from Put-in-Bay Watercraft Rentals. They ran well and were fun. They also have a trolley for getting about. Perry's Monument is there, and you can go to the observation deck. It is over 300 feet tall, so you can witness the island from a new perspective. Crystal Cave is an excellent site to check out. It is the biggest geode in the planet, and you get to go inside the cave. There is a Butterfly House on the island. Hotels exist so you can stay rather than visit for a day.

Stunning Day trip to South Bass Island State Park for camping and Jet Ski Rentals. The south bass island state park is primarily for camping and Put-in-Bay Watercraft Rentals. There is limited space for visitors who can unwind and appreciate the beach. Bathrooms were clean, and volleyball and food facilities were available. People were either relaxing under the shade, playing on the beach, or enjoying water activities. It's a place where you just lazily do whatever you feel like!

Beautiful Island and fun times on Jet Ski Rentals! I love the Island lovely place to visit 🙂 excellent recreation day or night. Lots of family stuff to do during the day, like Jet Ski Rentals and boat rentals. Then grown-up nightlife begins early evening; must-sees are Crystal caves, The swim-up bar at the Blue Marlin Bar & Grill, the Boardwalk Restaurant to eat, and the Putt-Putt- Golf Course.

Memorable Vacation at South Bass Island is a Superb location that we saw during our trip to Ohio. Put in Bay is an excellent place that I will remember forever.

The food we ate at several restaurants was really good. Our Put-in-Bay Rental golf cart was a blast!

South Bass Island Put-in-bay is an extremely lovely area that we saw during our holiday in Ohio. Visitors crowded all over the island because it was the weekend. Everyone enjoys on roads by traveling Golf cars, which are readily available for rent. So many restaurants and bars are there full of people—incredibly nice place to visit. Be sure to check out Put-in-Bay Watercraft Rentals for Jet Skis! jet ski rentals put in bay are a blast!

We spent the daytime there. It's a lovely place just to walk and take in Lake Erie. So much to do, from shopping to pubs and breweries. Would advise renting a golf cart. We tried a little bit of everything. Hotels are relatively costly on the island. I recommend staying at Port Clinton and taking the jet express to the island. This was my wife's fourth trip to South Bass Island in the past 15 years, and I have always had a fantastic time. We've been there by ourselves and twice with our children; both times, we found tons of things to do, like Jet Ski Rentals, and there is a place to rent small boats at the State Park Called Put-in-Bay Watercraft Rentals. Put in bay jet ski rentals are a blast!
