“Easy Way to Get Someplace Wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

We took the ferry from Pt Jude which is really easy. It is much closer to home than I had thought, and the directions are easy. Once you are there, you just park, walk, get your tickets and off you go. We didn't have any food or drink on the ferry, so I cannot comment on that. I would recommend going up on the top for the easiest time on landlubber tummies.

“A Nice Ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

This was all part of my day trip through Yankee Trails. I haven't been on the ferry since I was a kid when my parents took our family over there for the day. Very windy on the way back and Im glad I brought my jacket with me.

Had a very smooth trip and a wonderful trip, both ways. Even enjoyed a snack, it made the time pass by very quickly.
