Great shortcut. Enjoyed the vessel and the staff parking instructions. Would do it again if in the area.

Partly because of the reviews I had read, but mostly because of the sound of novelty, I was determined to put this ferry on our itinerary, and I am so glad we did. Arriving early, we were able to catch an earlier crossing and we...More

We drove on in Orient and took the dog along to New London, CT (from which we drove to R.I. for the day). Super smooth and comfortable ride. Nice area inside for those with pets. Great way to travel.

The ferry service to New London from Orient is so well worth it! Visa versa service beautiful too. Float calmly on the Long Island Sound. You miss all the traffic and congestion. Food available, comfortable seating, outside seating and in. Highly recommended!

The Cross Sound Ferry is great. It is easy to load and unload and the ride (about 80 minutes) is beautiful. We even saw a seal! Once you get to Orient Point the drive through the farmlands and vineyards on Long Island are gorgeous. This...More
