Miller Ferry restricts travel to Put-in-Bay

Apr 1, 2020 | Around Ottawa County | 0 comments

Miller Boat Line has implemented policies and a restricted schedule during the coronavirus pandemic, but will fulfill its obligation as “Lifeline to the Islands.”

Miller Ferry Line officials are permitting only residents, workers, and essential services aboard the ferry. It will not be hauling non-essential travel to Put-in-Bay and Middle Bass Island. This includes, but is not limited to, recreational fishermen with boats and trailers.

All restaurants, bars, shops, public restrooms, and attractions are temporarily closed.

Essential businesses that remain open to island residents at this time are the Island General Store, Post Office, Gas Station, Island Hardware, and Topsy Turvey (carry-out only).

We ask everyone to follow all health and safety recommendations set forth by the CDC ( on the ferries and on the islands. High contact areas of the vessel, ticket booths, and waiting areas will be sanitized after every trip.

Passengers shall remain in their vehicles for the duration of the trip. No more than 10 people are allowed in the passenger cabin aboard the vessel at a time. Walk-on passengers practice social distancing (6 feet minimum) aboard vessels and docks.

Upon return to the islands from winter travels or vacations, self-quarantine for a minimum of 14 days is recommended by the CDC.
