Ferries from the mainland originate from Catawba Island. Ferries run several times/day during the prime tourist season, scheduled sailings during spring/fall as weather allows. There is a small airport on the island (2085 x 67 ft.), as well. Middle Bass can be reached by pleasure boats, but lacks the fine natural harbor found at South Bass. A new 300+ slip marina is planned to open soon, and 50 slips are available at the State Park.
A small ferry, the Sonny S, takes passengers to/from nearby Put-in-Bay, which has a grocery and other services.
Given the small size of the island, Golf carts are popular as transportation. Cars are permitted on island roads, though speed limits are low. Bikes are a common means of transportation and the island can easily be walked as well.
==Do==There are few scheduled activities on the small island.Also, if you just want to hang out and swim there's a local pool. The pool was just made bigger. --126.96.36.199 12:16, 30 August 2008 (EDT)Andi--188.8.131.52 12:16, 30 August 2008 (EDT)
You can shop at Aunt Erma's for clothes toys for the young, and accesories.
Middle Bass Island is much less "touristy" than South Bass/Put-in-Bay, and has far fewer drinking establishments.
