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...

Found this ferry service on the internet by chance whilst planning our road trip through USA. Saved us having to double-back through Long Island to get to Connecticut. Reserved on-line via our phone whilst driving through Long Island and were sent e-mail tickets which we had no means to print off. However, if you note the reservation number that will... More

We rode the ferry from Orient NY to New London CT after a long drive across Long Island. We reserved our ferry time on the drive and they quickly took our reservation and sent our tickets via email. When we arrived, the attendant scanned our ticket from our smart phone and printed the tickets from his mobile device. It was... More

Taken cross sound's ferry over to block island from New London many times but without car. Always a great experience. Therefore this was new experience for us to bring the car over to long island. Awesome decision! Ride was smooth and really a nice boat ride. Had some breakfast on board and were ready to go exploring on long island.... More

Over the years, I have probably taken these ferries hundreds of times, and I've experienced the improvements from the horrible Caribbean to the sea-worthy and comfortable Mary Ellen. Allowing for online reservations and advanced ticket processing has made boarding seamless. No dashing to the office and waiting in line to purchase tickets. Changes can be made the day of travel...

A great way to get to the eastern end of Long Island while avoiding most of Long Island (or to get back to the mainland from there, in our case). As the Website says, do get to Orient Point at least 30 minutes ahead, even "pre-season" - this is one popular way to get from Long Island to Connecticut! Holds... More
