The Jet Express ferry boat is a short two minute walk across the drawbridge from our resort. They are advertised as the fastest way to get to South Bass Island and Put-N-Bay. Once on the islands, you can rent a bike or golf cart and tour South Bass Island with its wineries, caves, restaurants, bars and many shops. The Division of Wildlife operates a fish hatchery on the island which is very educational and ideal for kids. Also on the island is the historic Perry's Monument which stands 352 feet tall. It was established to honor those who fought during the War of 1812. Experience the breathtaking view from the observation deck. On a clear day Canada, Cleveland and the surrounding islands are visible. Two other ferry boats are located nearby on Catawba and Marblehead that allow you to take your vehicle over to the islands.
