My favorite method of travel especially to Newport, RI. With a full size SUV and tolls it adds up. For a little more money, bring a large coffee on the boat with a newspaper and relax. Once in Connecticut, Mystic is 10 minutes and 45...More

Found this ferry to be an enjoyable experience. Crew was organized, professional. Food bar onboard served tasty hot food; simple fare but worth the purchase. Comfortable trip both ways, arrived earlier than expected due to the weather and was embarked upon arrival-I really appreciated that!!

We regularly use this ferry as a delightful alternative to driving the length of Connecticut and fighting the Long Island traffic. Reservations and tickets online work well for us. The ferry offers decent snacks and meals onboard.

I love how easy it is to access the ferry. A quick trip across the sound, with deli service, and departures that leave hourly. It's a great way to escape for some down time without have to deal with traffic!
