I have been riding the ferry for many years now and I have never been disappointed with the experience. My most recent trip was across from New London and back for the Thanksgiving holiday. We were greeted by very friendly young men on the New London side and we met equally nice folks on the Long Island side. Snack bar... More

Great way to get from Long Island to Boston FAST! Beats driving all the way around. Cheats NYC out of their outrageous and corrupt toll system which we enjoy doing any time we can. You are in Boston or Cape Cod fast after you get off in New London. Bring your camera for great weather days. Food on the boat... More

When traveling from Long Island to Connecticut these ferry options are an excellent choice. Whether by passenger car or by foot there are options for connections for further travel by ferry system. Avoiding the roadways and the traffic congestion that would be necessary to get to Conn, is well worth the price. The casino option is a great deal with... More

I'm all for anything that will by-pass NYC and traveling to New London CT, catching the Cross Sound Ferry to Orient Point and back so that we could take our car to travel the North and South forks of Long Island was PERFECTION! The seats were plentiful and comfortable - inside and out...there was a wide variety of made-to-order food... More

We had been planning a trip from New Jersey to Rhode Island and found out about the Cross Sound Ferry. We absolutely hate driving through Connecticut so decided to at least not drive through the whole state by taking the ferry from Orient, NY to New London, CT. We reserved tickets online and it was an easy process. Arrival: We... More

In order to avoid the NYC traffic congestion, we took the Cross Sound ferry from New London, CN. to Orient Point, NY. It was the best decision we made! The ferry was very smooth, in fact we didn't know we were moving until we looked out the windows. The next time I tour the Long Island wine trail, this is... More

We love ferries and this one (with incredible views) was no exception but the surprise was the Cross Sound Deli onboard. We had a turkey club and and a turkey sandwich expecting to get a "previously prepared" sandwich. Not at all! They were fresh, good (on really good bread), and made to order -- no mayo, can you make it... More

I love taking the Seajet to New London, Conn. This is the way I go to Mohegan Sun. The regular Ferry takes 1 1/2 hrs and the Seajet is only 40 minutes. When I get off the high speed ferry the bus to the casino is waiting. I’m at Mohegan Sun in 15 minutes, if you prefer Foxwoods, the bus... More

Went to LI on a Saturday morning in July and came back Sunday evening. Ferry was not at all crowded and departed/arrived on time. Was a walk on passenger so a round trip was about $34 per person, and we got to board and get off before auto passengers. Parking in the garage across the street was $15/day I think,... More
