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!
