“only show in town, unfortunately”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

The ferry has gotten stupidly expensive, especially in the off season. It really prevents us from taking day trips over there. After hurricane Sandy, we wanted to go over to help with some cleanup, but it would have cost a day's pay to do it, so we bailed on the idea. Used to be my favorite place as a kid. Haven't been able to get back to see it in a few years now. just too expensive.

“Great Ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

We stayed across the street so access to the ferry was great. We left at 1:30pm and came back on the 7:00pm trip. It's only an hour ride, but you can pay double for the express ferry which can take you there in 1/2 the time.

“Take a Ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

If it's not the height of the summer, when the Ferry is packed and Block Island is overrun, this is a great trip to a lovely spot. Either the "Big Boat" or the other one is fun; the trip is just long enough to known you are on the water without it being overwhelming (except, of course, in those rough swells that might occur in breezy weather).

“Fall 2012 New England”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

The Ferry ride was terrific, I love to be on the water and we dined at Finns where the food was excellent. Would have been nice to have the car as we wanted to tour the island but the price to take a car over is a bit much. It was a lovely visit none the less.
