Put-in-Bay’s mooring field has been long regarded as a plum anchorage while visiting South Bass Island. The proximity to village attractions, the serene setting, and the reliable and trustworthy harbor taxi service all create a rewarding and satisfying boating experience. Each mooring ball registrant receives a welcome envelope which includes a coupon for a free vessel pump-out. Moreover, there is no additional fee for unlimited taxi service to/from the mooring. USCG licensed captains operate three harbor launches provided by The Boardwalk, which can be hailed on VHF channel 10. Taxi service, from the end of May until Labor Day, runs
8am until 11pm Monday through Thursday
8am until midnight on Friday
7am to midnight on Saturday and holidays
7am to 11pm on Sundays
Boardwalk Harbor Operations manages the mooring field on behalf of the Put-in-Bay Port Authority. Reservations are not allowed, per Port Authority rules.
