We took the ferry to Block Island for the day. The trip takes 55 minutes one way. There is a faster ferry that takes 30 minutes and costs more. The ride was comfortable and relaxing. We had to pay $10 to park our car for the day. We also brought our bikes on the ferry and there was a $3... More

Great trip to and from BI. Had no problem buying tickets about 20 min. before the ferry was scheduled to leave.

If you are looking for a great day trip with your family or friends consider Block Island. We took the traditional ferry from Point Judith, just a one hour trip, comfortable and fun. Bring your bike, sun screen and a sense of adventure. You will love it.

Took the high speed ferry from Point Judith to Block Island. What can I say about a ferry ride. Left right on time, much predicated as we had people waiting for us on the island. Comfortable, felt safe. Boarding was easy. Ticketing process was easy as we bought our tickets right at the ferry station. Plenty of parking at $10... More

Took the new high speed ferry to Block Island from Newport. What a treat! It is one hour and fifteen minutes from Newport to B I. Plenty to do there for the day and then a great ride back. Conveniently docked at Perrotti Park right on America's Cup Ave in Newport. A great way to spend a day with or... More

Have taken the trip many times and Block Island is a fun place to bike, swim and hike. The ride on the ferry (high speed or traditional) is peasant and the crew is great.

I've been traveling on this ferry (as well as others in the area) to BI for many years. As with most things, the BI ferry's service is not what it once was. It can be very crowded and you'd better plan to arrive a minimum of 1 hour before departing. I personally don't think advance reservations are necessary altho' the... More

Our trip over to Block Island was a bit disappointing because of the fog! It was extremely thick which meant the ferry Captain had to sound the fog horn frequently. This was a bit unnerving to the children on the ferry as well as the adults. Visibility was very limited and at times it was a bit scary. On a... More

We were welcomed aboard the hi speed ferry by the captain. Despite the dreary weather with the weekend coming this Friday afternoon provided a full boat. The trip took about 40 min. and ran smoothly.
