“Great Price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Just over $50 for two people was a great price for this 1 hour ride to a beautiful island. You can also get your car, moped, surfboard on the boat for decent prices, but we didn't do this. Ride was smooth and no one got sick.

“Linda and Jimmy Ferry to Block Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

We went over to the Island early in the morning and the ride was smooth, the view nice. We came back in the afternoon and the water had gotten a little rough but the trip was very nice.

“Sailing the Ocean Blue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

A great scenic way to get to Block Island and spend a day in a land where time stood still.
As if Rhode Island weren't great enough-Block Island is the icing on the cake.Rustic beauty but easy to get to.
Tho the date option doesn't go far enough back we were there several years ago.

“Enjoyable!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

I went on the Traditional Ferry, and I loved the ocean scenery! The humidity was the only thing I didn't like.

“cool ride on a hot day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

2 choices: fast ferry (30 minutes) or traditional ferry (55 minutes). Professionally run...a well-oiled machine. Fair fare. Tons of parking in walking distance (and you need it because there are tons of cars)
