We've had good experiences with this car ferry between Bridgeport, CT and Port Jefferson, NY (on Long Island). If you are heading to Long Island from the Northeast, the ferries do a great job of allowing one to avoid the traffic around NYC. The crossing takes slightly over an hour and the vessels are almost always right on time. We... More

From Port Jefferson to Bridgport and back it is the best way to travel. You can have a snack or sit in or out and enjoy the scenery. The staff is most helpful and curtious.

Whenever possible, we take the ferry from Bridgeport to Port Jefferson, avoiding the traffic in New York City. If you are traveling on a Friday evening to Long Island, the traffic can be horrendous! This is a great alternative! Enjoy your ride across the sound, and avoid the stress!

The ride can be a little bumpy, and the crew on the car deck can be a little head-strong with there vehicle jockeying.... but over all, it's better than driving and very relaxing. I never saw the need to sandwich cars on top of each other when the boat isn't full. That just makes for dented doors and angry passengers.... More

This was great! Easy, enjoyable and saved a bunch of time by not having to drive thru the City and construction.

Always enjoy the ride. It is a bit pricey though. Too bad that bridgeport is so run down. It would be a great thing if it became a tourist seaport destination on that side Also they should have later ferries when there are events at the Webster arena or hockey games

A nice way to avoid NYC traffic if you're traveling between Suffolk County and New England. Figure the trip for an hour and a half by the time the cars are off loaded.

On a recent visit to family on Long Island my wife said she wanted to visit Martha's Vineyard, which is another island and located two hundred miles to the east; further if one drove - making the trip via NYC. So I decided to take the local car and passenger ferry to Connecticut. Great decision. We got up early, catching... More
