Love the sea jet ferry, especially for day trips to Mohegan or Foxwood! Takes about 40 minutes compared to the car carrying ferry which is roughly 80 minutes. Food and drink is what you would expect, and staff on board is friendly.

Use the ferry many times to & from LI, NY. to New London, Ct. I have family outside Hartford, CT. Really takes traffic pressure away. Dine on board is fair on prices & good. I book on line for discounts & special offers.

This is the way to get to New London Ct. from Orient Point New York. One hour and twenty minutes of delight ! The ship is clean, the helpers are polite and the views are outstanding. If you can bring a map you can pick out the islands as you pass, the price for one vehicle and driver and one... More

Nice ride to the terminal. Price is fair. Nice deck to sit on and catch some rays during a summer trip.

If you hate traffic, or driving or just prefer a water view to a land view, take the ferry from NE to LI. The scenery is far better and the stress is far less. If you are lucky enough to have friends or family you can save a lot by having them meet you . That is, if you won't... More

Easy crossing to Long Island. Rewards program is great if you can find a time with availability that fits your schedule. Drinks and food onboard were actually quite good and fairly priced. Great service.

It was pretty smooth and saved us close to 2 hours of driving. Drive in your car and sit at the top deck for some great views. the middle deck is an air-conditioned restaurant. Book online if you need to travel with a car.
