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!

It is a lovely trip across long island sound. Amazingly the food on the boat is quite good. Watching Connecticut go past and Long island come into view is a wonderful sensation. They sure do squeeze all the cars in.
