This is a lovely way to see the harbor and commute into boston. Not cheap but well worth the price. The views are outstanding and no traffic to be concerned with.

Just a wonderful way to get to see the harbor and make your way to Boston from Salem. Had a great time seeing the shops and let them worry about getting me back as driving to Boston can be challenging with traffic. Highly recommend

A great way to get to Salem. A little more expensive than the train but the scenery and lovely ride is worth it! Only downer is the hours of operation, wish they were better schedule.

I love riding on a boat. And, this is the ultimate. It leaves Salem and lands in the North End of Boston, which is an adventure in itself, with the finest restaurants ever.

This experience of a high speed boat to Boston is worth every penny. Food and drink available at fair prices. 1 hr trip. Salem pier has a Tiki Bar to eat and drink a full bar menu while waiting for ride. Takes you to Fanual Hall.

Really beautiful, scenic ride from Boston to Salem and back. Comfortable ride. Plenty of space. Loved seeing the islands with homes on them and the homes nestled on the coastline rocks. Salem is also a beautiful town to pull into.

This was a great ferry to Boston. It was very relaxing and comfortable. The views were nice from the boat. I especially loved when Boston came into view. What a beautiful city from the water.

We had such a great ride into Boston. There were 2 couples, "retired" and it couldn't have been easier to relax and not stress out going into B town.
