When people visit Put-in-Bay Ohio, their principal method of transportation to get around the island is a gas-powered golf cart. Bringing a personal vehicle to the island is highly discouraged because parking downtown is VERY limited. Some locations don’t have any parking at all! And what little parking is available is usually sized for small golf carts, not big cars. Finally, the additional expense of bringing a car (over $40) and the possibility of waiting a few hours to get a car on to the ferry to get to the island and then back on the ferry to get off the island can be a major inconvenience and a big waste of your vacation time. That’s why Golf Carts are so popular!

Our Golf Carts are available during the warmer summer months of the year. We have high quality brand new Yamaha Golf Carts that rent out hourly, daily, and overnight. With more than 9 miles of paved mostly flat roadways, riding a golf cart is a fun, easy way to explore the Village of Put-in-Bay and the rest of South Bass Island.
Our 2 person electric carts are a fun and quick way for couples to cruise the island for the day. If you’re bringing the kids, our 4 seat electric will be a big hit also. Our carts are super safe with retractable seat belts to keep your precious cargo safe and secure. Total relaxation with this smooth and quiet ride. All Put-in-Bay Golf Cart Depot carts are powered locally by Crown Battery, Fremont, Ohio.
Our 4 and 6 seat gas carts are your passport for overnight and weekend or all week long rentals.

At over 35 MPG, running out of gas is never an issue for your multiple day or weekly golf cart rental. These carts leave all the others eating dust!
