Why? Jet Express Giveaway!

This weekend, Matthew, Jeffrey, my parents, and I made a little day getaway to Put-In-Bay aboard the Jet Express.


The Lake Erie Islands make for the perfect summer staycation and, when you only have a day to explore, the Jet Express is the perfect way to get there.


The Jet Express provides the quickest way to get to Put-In-Bay or Kelley’s Island from either Port Clinton or Sandusky, with tons of travel times, central drop-off locations, late night service, and guaranteed spots when you reserve online.

So, how do you make the most of one day on Put-In-Bay? Here’s my Top 5 List:

1.Plan ahead. Think about your interests and what you would like to do while on the island. The Jet Express offers packages to fit lots of different needs, from families to island hoppers. We had the Kayaks & Caves Adventure Deal as our package for the day, which helped structure our activities.

2. Secure a mode of transportation. This will ensure you can maximize the ground you cover. Our Kayaks & Caves package offered a free bike rental for two from Island Bike & Cart Rental.


Since we had 5 people and a wagon to haul, we opted for a cart rental instead. This allowed us to cover maximum ground in minimum time.


3. Head below ground. Both Perry’s Cave

and the Crystal Cave at Heineman’s Winery

offer one-of-a-kind experiences unique to Put-In-Bay and captivating for all ages. Tours of both caves were included in our package and were not something I would have experienced otherwise.

4. Nourish and hydrate appropriately for your adventures. From the lobster roll and Lake Erie perch and walleye at The Boardwalk Upper Deck (we had a $25 food voucher there as part of our package)

to the award-winning wines at Heineman’s Winery

to a fruity blender drink at Mojito Bay Tiki Bar, there’s plenty to tempt you in food and drink. Make sure you have time to enjoy a variety!


5. Leave time for distractions. We went in with the Kayaks & Caves Adventure Deal guiding our day. But along the way, we stumbled into Kimberly’s Carousel


and the Pyrate Fest


and the beauty and history of Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial.

As much as you need to plan to maximize a one-day trip, you need to also allow the island to work it’s charms on you and not be afraid to stop and enjoy them along the way!

So you can enjoy your own getaway to the Lake Erie Islands, I have two round-trip tickets on the Jet Express to give away! The tickets are good for any day in 2017, departing from Port Clinton. And to sweeten the deal, I’ll throw in a bike rental for two voucher from our package that we weren’t able to use.

    I’d love to take a day trip to Put in Bay with my wife, exploring the island by bicycle. I really like lighthouses and would love to check out Perry’s Monument.
