We drove over from Garrison N.Y., stopped at the Ogden House restoration and then picked up some drinks and snacks to take to the island. It was a very nice 30 min. trip out and then we walked a bit and sat on the beach. There is a tour of the lighthouse but we skipped it...maybe next time. If you... More

Family-friendly ferry ride, about 30 min to Sheffield Island. Captain and crew did a great job on giving outbound tour of coastline history and current use. Slow moving but quite beautiful trip :)

This was a family event that had wonderful scenery. Beautiful views of Norwalk harbor. A amazing boat ride to and from the island and we learned some interesting thinks about the Lighthouse from the great staff.

A large, clean and comfortable ride. Captain John is friendly and so is his crew. Great views of the Norwalk harbor.

Sheffield Island, and all the Norwalk Islands, are quite interesting. We have a boat docked in Norwalk and often go out on our own. However, belonging to the Norwalk Seaport Association gives us a couple of tickets every year to use the ferry, which we did today. It's nice to have someone else drive for a change! The boat is...

Wonderful boat ride! Loved the tour guide. Saw OSPREYS!! The lighthouse is charming. Very worthwhile trip, just be sure to bring bug spray and a picnic or snacks. We will be doing this trip again I'm sure.

My boyfriend and I took the Norwalk Sheffield Island Ferry last week (August 2014). It was a bit of a cloudy day but still beautiful and warm. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and told us all about the history of Norwalk, conservation efforts, and lots of anecdotes I had never heard. We left around 3 PM and returned around... More

My family and I took the Sheffield Island Ferry last summer and really enjoyed it. We overlooked the ferry for many years but we're so glad we finally did it. The tour guides and boat captain were very knowledgeable and the boat ride was lovely. We brought lunch, took the tour, and enjoyed the beautiful weather and great views of... More

We wanted to spend some time on the water but also see a light house so this was a perfect choice. Although I agree that the price is a little high, it was a full 3 hours of nature and relaxation so really not that bad of a deal. The ride out to the island lasts about 30 minutes and... More

Once we boarded the ferry I was put at ease by the professional crew! Once underway I was impressed with the description of what we were seeing - made the trip seem much shorter
