General info

During peak summer season Put-in-Bay trips begin as early as 6:30 am and depart Catawba as late as 9:30 pm with trips every half hour. Quite a change from 1946 when ferries departed for only three trips from Catawba. Miller Boat Line is the only scheduled ferry service to Middle Bass Island from the mainland. Miller Boat Line continues to add services and provide values for its customers: Budget-friendly fares, season passes to Put-in-Bay and Middle Bass, frequent floater tickets, season parking, group and student fares, free parking and island packages. Miller Boat Line proudly supports several non-profit and community organizations and events on Put-in-Bay and neighboring mainland communities.

Miller Boat Line is the primary UPS carrier to Put-in-Bay and Middle Bass, which Griffing Island Airlines assumes once the ferry season has ended for the winter. Retail shops, Dockside, Waterline, and Bayview Gifts, offer gifts, snacks, sportswear, and free island and area information. The landmark Miller Office on Bayview Avenue, Put-in-Bay overlooks the downtown Miller Dock, winter home to all four vessels. Across the street is Miller Marina, developed in 1995 with available dockage totaling 1100 feet. Because of its serene setting and proximity to town, the marina is one of the most popular dockage spots for residents and transient boaters. In 2016, additions include a new Information Kiosk for added customer service.
