Not only is this ferry significantly more economical the others, it also gets you there just almost just as quickly. Efficient staff who seem to know what they are doing

It's not as fast as Jet Express but, if you're not in a big hurry, it's much more relaxing. And...you can take your car! Reasonable price as well.

This was a wonderful, convenient way to visit South Bass Island. We were novices to the ferry boat , they made it so easy. And the ride was super enjoyable! Perfect length of time, and well done.

From Catawba or Sandusky, there are faster ways to "The Bay," or Kelly's Island, but why not relax and enjoy the trip...and you can take your car for less than the cost of renting a golf cart for four hours.

The price is right, the ride is romantic, and there are plenty of transportation options once you reach the island. Highly efficient. Much less expensive than taking your boat over.

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.
