Just wanted to share my latest experience with the staff of the cross sound ferry both in Orient, NY and New London, CT. I mistakenly bought one ticket too many and was promptly issued a refund on the spot. The following morning we needed to get out of Boston and back to Long Island before a snow storm hit. The...

although far from inexpensive, this 45 minute or so ferry ride across the Long Island Sound from the tip of the north fork of Long Island to New London CT is an extremely pleasant way to avoid miles and miles of traffic through NYC and most of CT.

I looked up rates last night and there was a very good discount for the travel across. I did not want to buy the ticket right now because I was waiting on my friend to make sure she made it, there is a bad winter storm coming from the east and she was traveling hoping to miss it or be... More

Cross Sound Ferry Service is a very convenient way to travel between Long Island and eastern Connecticut. We use it to visit family in Boston and it works very well. It is pet friendly with assigned areas.We were particularly impressed recently when a crew member offered coloring books and crayons to youngsters to help pass the time. I like the... More

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
