A little pricey but none are as fun.The boat is fast and a little bumpy. it takes right into the main harbor. there you can walk around town or rent a golf cart to reach other destinations on the island

Fast trip, and surprisingly smooth considering how choppy the water was! If you have AAA, you get $2 off, so be sure to bring your card. Crazy people on the way home, but they made for entertaining karaoke.

Took the jet from Sandusky to Put-in-bay. It is a bit expensive, 34 bucks round trip, but it is pretty quick and they drop you down town. They don't offer any food or drinks on the boat. It is strictly a taxi across the lake.

This ferry is a great way to get to Puy In Bay and I enjoyed the ride as much as the destination. You can opt to sit inside. On the first two levels or the upper deck outside which is what I would recommend

The cart is gas and it depends if your quote is for all day or a select period of time. I think we paid $14.00 per hour, if not rented for the entire day.
