Put-in-Bay Boating & Dockage

Put in Bay Ohio offers several choices for marinas with dockage, both public and private. When boating to Put-in-Bay Ohio, many docks are on a first-come first-served basis, so plan to arrive early on busy weekends and holidays. The village of Put-in-Bay maintains three large boat docks in the downtown area. Two are managed by the Put-in-Bay Village and the other known as “B” dock is managed by the DeRivera park trust. Some privately owned boat docks accept advance reservations and weekends tend to fill up early in the week.

While docking at Put-in-Bay’s public marinas, you may be required to “raft off” from up to 2 to 4 vessels. Plan ahead and bring your boat bumpers, and always practice courteous boat rafting. In particular, please try to be polite if coming back late night when others may be asleep already.

While docked at Put-in-Bay, golf carts, bicycles and mopeds may be rented for your transportation needs by the hour, day, or overnight for several days at a time from Island Club Golf Carts, located in the central island area, or at Put-in-Bay Golf Cart Depot on the end of downtown close to the Reel Bar. Or if you just need a quick trip, call a Put-in-Bay Taxi and get there fast.
