Friday afternoon gets very heavy eastbound traffic on Long Island. In addition to the Orient Point-New London ferry, also check schedules for the Port Jefferson-Bridgeport ferry. I think the route via Orient Point might be shorter, but the route via Port Jefferson might get you out of some of the eastbound weekend traffic (although certainly not all of it.)

The ferry from Port Jefferson (to Bridgeport) is much closer on this end than having to drive all the way to Orient Point where you'll likely find heavy traffic. If you wanted to make some vineyard/scenic stops along the way, Orient is the better option. But to just get home, taking the ferry from Port Jeff. is better. I strongly recommend making a ferry reservation. Fridays will be very busy. Even if you miss the ferry you book, you'll have an easier time getting on the next one than if you make no reservation. (This goes for either ferry).

Port Jeff Ferry to bridge was our choice last summer and we beat some traffic taking that route.
