Perry’s Monument at Put-in-Bay Harbor

Island Air Taxi, a locally owned and operated flight service on South Bass Island, remains a reliable and convenient way  to commute between Put-in-Bay and the mainland.  Dustin Shaffer and his wife Chontel do a remarkable job accommodating passenger schedules and working around challenging weather conditions.
