We took the Cross Sound Ferry (https://www.longislandferry.com) from Orient Point (Long Island, NY) to New London, CT on the way back from Montauk. The car+driver cost was $55, additional $15 per adult. First of all, it saved 2 hours of my driving. The ferry itself seemed maintained- surrounding and toilet was clean. The snacks and coffee were also within reasonable... More

We made a reservation over the phone for a 9 am ferry leaving Orient pt. NY. I was next to my wife when I heard her ask for "availability for Fri. morning leaving from Orient NY". We did not have internet service where we were staying and could not check e-mails or book the ferry on our own online. When... More

The Cross Sound Ferry provides efficient, well run service between New London, CT and Orient Point, NY. The boats are clean and well maintained, the staff is professional and cordial, and the food is as good as it gets on a ferry and barely overpriced.

The painful thing about his ferry is that you have to get there at least 30 minutes before departure to go into the office and get your tickets. I would rather have the staff directing the cars to the loading lines, confirm and scan reservations. Sometimes I wonder if they know what they are doing, about 2 weeks ago we... More

Never took the ferry to Long Island and could not have been more pleased with the schedule, the way the staff accommodated us and the pleasant trip over and back. We will do this again soon and looking forward to it.

Best way to get to Long Island from New England. In less than a hour and a half you and your car are there. We saved hours! Orient is a great starting point when exploring the north shore and the Long Island vineyards. We made a brief stop in Greenport, a charming northern seaport. The ferry was clean but not... More

We always take the ferry when we travel from Long Island to Connecticut and other places in New England. Their new pricing system includes a base fare for advance reservations, and priority fare for first to board and first to get off.

The best way to get from Long Island NY to Connecticut (or vice versa). The boat is clean! The crew is knowledgeable and friendly -- especially in the "kitchen" area. The seating is OK, but not luxurious. Over all a good way to get there and save HOURS versus going around by land. There are also several lighthouses that are... More

I find their new "base price" vs. "full price" categories to be distasteful and offensive. I can think of no other word to describe these recent change in booking other then "greedy" in the extreme. Even though the Bridgeport ferry is only a few dollars cheaper, I would rather take my business there where I feel that I am treated... More

Super trip. Not sure it is quicker, yet for sure more fun. The ship matters so pick the right one. Enjoy
