Located in the very heart of downtown Put-in-Bay DeRivera Park's B Dock is the place to be at the bay.
The Dock is in the center of the harbors public dock facility. Owned by DeRivera Park Trust all funds generated from the dock are used to maintain
the park or are put back into the dock itself.
This reinvestment of funds provides our patrons with an exceptional docking facility.
Our location, a superior dock, protected dock from any weather, and dedicated dockmasters are the reason many boaters only choose B dock.
B Dock, like the other public docks in the central harbor, is a linear dock. The dock is equipped with a finger
on the south west end, close to the shorline for our customers with smaller boats.
Built in 2001 this is the only small boat dock in the public harbor equipted with electric service and dock lighting. In order to provide service to the maximum number of
patrons, all docks in the central harbor require rafting up to four boats deep. Every attempt is made to match boats of similar sizes to safely
provide the maximum the amount of dockage available to our visitors. In most cases the difference in size between boats will be no more that 3 feet.
The dock assignments are controlled by the dockmaster on duty. As you enter the harbor you should contact B Dock on the calling channel marine #9. After contact
is made the dockmaster will have you switch to marine channel #68 to talk about your assignment and directions.
If you have a 28 foot vessel and dock in the center of a 40 foot hole that is against the dock, the dockmaster will most likely move you to another
location to efficiently use the space available. This will also allow us to help as many boaters as possible enjoy Put-In-Bay in safety.

Where does the money go?
DeRivera Park is protected by a Trust. The trust was founded in 1866 with the purpose of maintaining a park on the lake in the village of Put in Bay
for ever. The only source of income for the maintainance of the park comes from revenues generated on B dock. The revenues go to pay for maintenance
and repair employe payroll, improvements, utilities, the fountain, and dock improvements and repair. It also pays the mortgage on 18.7 acers of undeveloped land purchased by the trust and left as a natural green
