Miller Ferry Updates Service Schedule

Miller Ferry to Put in Bay

Effective: Tuesday, March 24, 2020.

Miller Boat Line will be operating on a reduced schedule to both Put-in-Bay and Middle Bass Islands. This is an action that has not been taken lightly and has been given considerable thought.

Put in Bay

We take our responsibility for the transportation of needed goods and services very seriously and will continue to do so. Vital, necessary, and required supplies for the residents of these islands will be our top priority during these trying times and for the immediate future. Miller Boat Line will do everything in its power to fulfill its obligation as the “Lifeline to the islands”.

Miller Ferry Response to Covid-19

Ferry to Put in BayMiller Ferry

To Our Customers, Visitors, Employees, and Community:

These are unusual times that require strong actions. Our priorities focus on the health of our families, employees, residents, customers, and health of our small island communities. The islands are not a place to escape, nor a safe haven from events the world is experiencing. We are a community of senior citizens, families, and children who live here. Those returning from vacations and winter residences please refer to government recommendations about self-quarantine to help reduce the risk of exposure on the islands. Miller Boat Line will follow federal and state guidelines and mandates to help ensure everyone’s safety and well-being in this evolving situation. We ask everyone to take these events seriously and take ALL precautions recommended.

Many people will be returning to the islands after spending time at their winter homes and travels. Like everyone, we hope for a return to normalcy as smoothly as possible.

We recommend the following Guidelines:

  • If you board the ferry in a vehicle, please remain in the vehicle aboard the ferry.
  • Follow health precautions and limit interactions with others.
  • Practice safe handling of your tickets when passing to crew members.

We will update everyone as needed throughout this ongoing health situation. Updates will post on

Peace and health to everyone during these challenging times.
