Take ferry from Montauk or Orient Pt. to Block Island?

HI,

Just wondering of there was any advantage in taking the ferry from Montauk versus Orient Pt.? It's actually $30 more roundtrip from Montauk. Why is that? Thank you

I don't think there is a ferry to BI that starts out in Orient Point. At least they only talk about "the ferry from Montauk" that docks in New Harbor instead of Old Harbor. There used to be a ferry from Orient Point to New London Ct and it may still be running. There is a Hi Speed ferry from New London to BI. Maybe that's where the confusion is.

Agreed. From Orient Point you have to go to New London and then to Block Island

You can take the ferry from Orient Point to New London and then switch ferries and take the ferry from New London to Block Island. If you go on the ferry website www.goblockisland.com you will see that they offer this double ferry ride at the same price as the New London to Block Island price.

The downside is that you are taking twice as many ferries, the up side is that it is very reasonably priced and you can enjoy being on the water longer if that appeals to you.
