Village Docks

Village Docks

In the heart of our beautiful downtown area, recreational boaters will find themselves just steps from Put-in-Bay’s exhilarating island life. Whether planning a stop for lunch at one of the many wonderful island restaurants or an overnight stay to experience the entertaining and lively nightlife, the Village of Put-in-Bay’s A & C docks can accommodate you. Both overnight and daily dockage are available. In addition to the perfect location, boaters will have access to water, electricity, and the Village’s large bathhouse. Dockmasters can be reached on channel 69 of your marine radio.
