Very Nice Experience
Sep 2021
We enjoyed the leisure ride to Put In Bay from Catawba and back. I purchased my tickets online which was a nice convenience. There was plenty of parking available. They are very efficient in loading vehicles and passengers. Did not take long at all. The Friday we went it wasn't crowded even though it was the eve of the Labor Day weekend.

Great Crew
Aug 2021
What a great crew you have working for the Miller Ferry! My husband and I both walk with canes and on Tuesday we went to PIB on the Miller Ferry. When we got off the boat on PIB, the crew asked if we would like a ride up the hill on a golf cart. When it was time to come back to the mainland at the end of the day, they took us down to the Ferry on a golf cart again. When we arrived back at Catawba Island, they gave us a ride right to our car the was parked in the handicap section of the parking lot. Thank you so much for the rides!

Great Experience
Sep 2021
Always a great experience when I travel on the Miller Ferry. The people are great, the view of the lake is awesome and the trip from Catawba to Put-In-Bay doesn't take long at all. I recently took my office on a day trip to PIB and there were 21 of us. The ticket person was friendly and gave us a quantity discount on the tickets. I needed one more ticket because I had miscounted on the number in our group so I went back to the window and told her I needed one more. She still gave me a discount and I didn't even ask. The wind was whipping pretty hard that day and it was a pretty rough ride but, it was still a fun ride and the captain put the ferry up to the dock like a pro. The Miller Ferry is half the price of the Jet Express and you get to Put-In-Bay just as quick.

I will Never again use the Miller Ferry boat line again
Aug 2021
Get up to date with your electronics. Paper Tickets can easily be lost which happened to us and despite having our round trip receipt, Bo was rude and made us go look for it - making us take the next ferry 2 hours later. The Captain accidentally went to the wrong island on our return trip delayed our return by another half hour/ the ferry was already late?????

Trapped in the car
Aug 2021 • Friends
I was not informed when making the reservation that you not only pay for your car but also each individual inside the car. The first trip across the lake was fine, we were able to move about the ferry but the second trip was miserable. The cars were packed in so tightly that the car doors could not be opened and I have severe claustrophobia which caused a major panic attack. I was extremely upset and very nauseous the entire trip across the lake which is about 40 minutes. On top of that, one of the employees was instructing me on how to park and reached inside my car and grabbed my steering wheel without asking me if it would be ok. Considering all the issues with Covid, I found this very reckless on the employees part. Not only that but it was extremely rude to enter my personal space without permission.

Enjoying the Scenery on the Ferry

It was a lovely time being transported by the Miller Ferry to Put-in-Bay. It was a scenic route on the lake and we had no challenges.

Very busy but very efficient.
Jun 2021
Kind of expensive to transport our car round trip. Plus they charge for each passenger even though we stayed in our car. If you want to go to Middle Bass Island you have to make reservations and we had to book a round trip which was a 6hour time frame. There is a water taxi to put in Bay which is a nice trip, but in the end we decided to ferry I put in Bay and taxi to Middle Bass which has a couple of nice restaurants and a historic winery. No way could we have spend 6 hours there. The water taxi only takes cash so be preoared..
