Had the occasion to spend a day on put in bay recently. A bit pricey at 34 pp, by contrast the competitors are much less but are not as convenient. -enjoy

Friendly crew. Expensive at $34 round trip per person. About a 30 minute ride. Convenient at a run every 45 minutes.

Great company to use for the ferry! Mon-Fri, they have a coupon for the round-trip for two plus an all-day golf cart for $100. Get there early though because the golf carts go fast.

The cart is gas and it depends if your quote is for all day or a select period of time. I think we paid $14.00 per hour, if not rented for the entire day.
