What is the Jet Express

The Jet Express is a series of four high-speed passenger-only catamarans that travel to Put-in-Bay village on South Bass Island and Kelleys Island. The Jet Express departs from downtown Port Clinton and Sandusky, Ohio, providing convenient, direct service to downtown Put-in-Bay and Kelleys Island.

The Jet Express provides a smooth, swift voyage to the islands. The journey from Port Clinton to Put-in-Bay covers 12.5 miles and lasts 25 minutes. Departing from Sandusky, the trip covers 18.5 miles and lasts 45 minutes. Both routes place you in the heart of historic downtown Put-in-Bay. Service to Kelleys Island is available from the Sandusky dock. The Jet Express is the only ferry to offer late-night weekend service off Put-in-Bay; night owls can experience the Put-in-Bay night life and board the Jet Express through 12:15AM or later. Check the schedule for details.

The Jet Express guarantees you first-class service while onboard. Riding on Lake Erie’s only catamaran ferry, you will experience a sleek, stylish, and comfortable journey to your destination.
