This is a working ferry service where you can take your car. You can also walk on but will need to find transportation on the island. This service runs until end of season and has limited schedule just before then.

Very convenient with very little wait time. Miller service was perfect for an impromptu getaway. Restrooms were clean and gift shop was perfect for a snack and drink to go.

One of the popular attractions/transit options to Put-in bay island. Finding a parking near-by was a hassle, probably coz we reached there by noon. Great climate, windy noon added to our pleasant trip to the island. Well-organized ferry ride which has options for carrying people...More

Used Miller Ferry to go to Put-In-Bay for our 1st time!! Easy experience, cheap ($7 per person one way) and free parking. Takes about 20 minutes one way so get to relax. We will definitely use Miller in the future for our island trips!!

Had another wonderful trip to put in bay along the Miller boats. Very reasonable priced compared to jet express. You won't go wrong here. Enjoy the ride over on Miller Boats!

Went over to South Bass Island on the Miller Boat line. Can't beat their $7.00 fares and the $2.50 bus into town is right there to take you downtown.

Adults are $7.00 one way, children 6-11 years are $1.50 and children 5 and under are free. There is not a shuttle, but many local taxi companies. For more info, visit the Miller Ferry website.
