This was my first time taking the ferry to LI, and I must admit, it was much better than driving all the way through CT, down to the Bronx, Throgs Neck Bridge, and back out the island to my destination. The ride was a bit choppy, but would most definitely take the ferry again! Car and two of us was reasonably priced. What a trip parking the car! One of the first onto the ferry, and had upper level parking, right up front! Was curious to see how we disembarked in Orient Point! Then the ramp I was parked on began to lower when the cars below were cleared. Beautiful view of the CT shoreline, New London harbor, Niantic, then turned for Orient Point. Passed Plum Island, into Orient Point. Want to go out there again, and just do the Wine Trail on the Eastern end of the island. Must have passed well over a dozen vineyards.
