Your Way to See Put-in-Bay!

If you really want to step up your game, try one of the Custom Yamaha Adventurer Sports. These carts offer a 3-inch lift kit, sporty tires and wheels with a fold down back seat for hauling groceries or gear if needed. These are Put-in-Bay’s finest Yamaha golf cart rentals, offering a great value in your overall vacation experience. One of the only overnight rentals on the island and much cheaper on a midweek weekday.

They are also offering an Electric Assist Bike Rental for a new way to see the island. Get your exercise but have some help along the way. However, these will be on a limited supply basis, so please call for info about both the Bicycles and the Golf Cart Rentals. Whether you are coming from Cleveland or Chicago, you will appreciate the ease of getting around on a passenger golf cart

Golf Cart Depot Safety

You can rest assured that each cart is inspected before the season by the Put-in-Bay Police. EVERY cart on the island needs to be inspected and registered. It’s the law. Further, each cart features important safety equipment which guests are encouraged to use as it is, again, the law. Each cart has turn signals, taillights, and most importantly… seat belts. Both our partners at Island Club Golf Carts and us take safety as a serious matter. We are also doing extra sanitizing and cleaning this year due to Covid.
