Owner description: Theres plenty to see at South Bass Island, such as the Marblehead Lighthouse, the Cedar Point Amusement Park, and the William Perry Monument, and its fishing opportunities cant be beat, especially if you're fishing for Walleye and Perch.

This has become an annual trip for us Women. Taking a ferry over makes the experience interesting each time as we tend to bring too much but it makes us laugh. We rent golf carts for transportation to see the Island and get around. The little town is cute with plenty of places to eat at and drink at. The night spots are fun and we danced til they closed the places. Pizza after hours is available and everyone here is so friendly. We DO go after kids are back in college so it is not as obnoxious. I would NOT bring young children here unless you keep them away from the town area. We enjoy the harbor & seeing the vineyards butterfly house etc. Each year we do something a little different and squeeze a lot in. Shopping is so-so. Too touristy, they could get some nicer stores for the more serious shopper with money to spend...It is a blast here. Would recommend it for a girls weekend for all age women.

We rented on line a 19' boat from pib.com and pre paid the $357.23 After taking a water taxi to the Island, renting a golf cart to get us to the boat rental location, we discovered that the business was closed. They did not return our calls! Put In Bay Jet Ski...no show
