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.

Expensive fare, but worth it. Great way to travel. Cut hours off of trip. I loved the drive through the country on the way to the ferry. Beautiful. Snacks, tv, drinks available on ferry.

Best way to go from LI to NE. Much more relaxing than driving around. I take it anytime I am heading to New England

Decided to drive to New London, CT and take the ferry to Orient, NY just for the fun of it. Way more fun than I thought. The kids at the New London side running the ferry lanes etc were great. The fare with 2 people and a full size 4 door pick up was $60 some dollars. Cheap to me... More

If you live on long island or eastern long island & you want to travel to Block Island this is the boat to take.. we tried the Montauk ferry & enjoyed taking 2 boats on the Orient ferry opposed to one boat on the Montauk line..

Lovely cruise (on a dreary, drizzly day) with Cross Sound Ferry from New London, CT to Orient Point, NY, on the North Fork of Long Island. Boat is well equipped with a large snack bar, bar and game room for the kids.

We have always taken the Cross Sound Ferry from LI to NE and vice versa for many years. The elimination of the drive through SW Connecticut and the Bronx is rewarding enough, but when you add the 1.5 hour sea trip with great vistas on the water, plus the east end wineries the cost of the trip is truly a...

Many of us don't get to travel by sea too often as a journey going someplace and not just a cruise. The 1 hour 20 min cruise between Orient Point on Long Island and New London, CT has some great views and is comfortable as it needs to be. We to were on the converted LST that served at Normandy...
