considering the amount of time you'll spend on the Belt Parkway, leading up to the Verrazano Bridge, and the outrageous tolls, before you reach the New Jersey Turnpike, take the ferry, car and two passengers, about $65, a very enjoyable hour and 20 minute crossing, fairly close to i-95, a nice ride through Connecticut, and if you're heading south, follow...

The personnel are very rude and not helpful at all. On some ferry's they make your passenger get out of the car. You have to ask them a couple of times to not have your passenger get out of the car and meet you upstairs. You cant stay in your car while on the ferry. If you don't have a... More

Sounds like a wonderful opportunity to have a ride on the boat while traveling to NYC, but I got there at 2pm to get on the boat, but there was no spot. So I went online right away and reserved 3:30 pm spot. Before exiting parking lot stopped to ask guys, working there, what time I should come back ,... More

We decided to take the Ferry from Connecticut to Orient NY. Very good decision and cut off a lot of driving to NYC. Ferry does a good job and all staff on board was courteous and professional.

On the book tour, we were half way out on Long Island and had a Boston date the next day. The Cross Sound Ferry saved us a great deal of time and traffic hassles, by shooting directly over to New London. Basic Ferry service, but helps you avoid NYC traffic all together if you need to be up in New... More

My girlfriend and I took the Susan Anne from New London to Orient recently. The biggest issue was the fact the website kept giving an error indicating an incorrect date format when all you do is click on the calendar day. This happened both on my smartphone and on a public computer. Because of this I called and was quickly... More

This review is for the trip to Long Island - Orient Point - Susan Anne boat Ticket Ordering - this is the only reason I rates 4/5. The website was broken and we had to order via phone after attempting to use the site over several days. No big deal, but it was an inconvenience. "Terminal" (taking your car) -... More

My wife and I had a difficult drive back from Martha's Vineyard and Cape Cod, what with Columbus weekend holiday traffic and then hours long back up on an attempt to get over Narraganset Bay Bridge at Newport, RI. The result was backtrack through Providence and survive Friday rush hour traffic there. We were exhausted by the time we got... More

I found a great rate by joining the frequent traveler program offered by them. Look up the days you want to travel and then check the prices for the different times. I got 22.95 one way and 33.95 the other way. That price is for car and driver, This saves the headache, tolls and gas of driving around and through... More
