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

Although it can be expensive for a car and driver and passengers, it's worth the money to save driving time to Connecticut and beyond. If you sign up for their rewards membership, they will email you with specials that can sometimes be half the price. The trip takes about 90 minutes, and they have comfortable seating, rest rooms, and food... More

Living on the far east end of Long Island, Cross Sound Ferry puts the beauty of New England at our fingertips, including the great city of Boston. The New London terminal is very close to Route 95, and usually taking Route 95 from there or to there misses the bulk of Route 95 traffic congestion. Two basic services are offered,... More

If you are interested in a day trip to Moheigh Sun or Foxwoods, this is the way to go. For $33, leave the car in Orient Point Long Island with free parking. The ride is about 40 minutes. The boat has a coffee stand, so get a cup of coffee, read a paper and enjoy. Buses pick you up in... More

We have been taking the cross sound ferry for years to Long Island. You cannot beat the service and the price. The ferry itself is nothing but the relaxing trip across the sound is unbeatable. Do not drive! The ferry is the way to go.
