The German engineered Amphicar will make a splash Tuesday in the Lake Erie Islands when 7 to 10 of the hybrid boat-cars tour North Bass, Middle Bass and South Bass Islands as part of the Port Clinton, OH Amphicar Swim-in July 26-29.
The event began Sunday in Port Clinton. The Amphicar will board the Miller Ferry to Middle Bass Tuesday morning and after an island tour and lunch, they will head to North Bass Island for a historic island tour there. The vehicles will return to Middle Bass, drive across the island and then depart via the Lonz boat ramp and motor to Put-in-Bay.
The vehicles will arrive at Put-in-Bay and access the island from the downtown public boat ramp about 5pm. The car will then proceed to the Put-in-Bay Chamber of Commerce for a picnic dinner and mini Amphicar Show.
The group will depart Put-in-Bay on the Miller Ferry about 8pm.
