Logan airport to Plymouth- ferry?

Is there a ferry from Logan Airport to Quincy or any point further south?

I have rented a house in Plymouth in late June for all the adult kids to join us for a big birthday and the transportation routes need some advice please. We really do not want to do 5 different trips to Logan during our vacation week and not everyone can come the same day so we are anxious for options and would appreciate advice. We can do some pickups at nearby stations but would not like to drive back and forth into the city or to the airport.

* Brookline to Plymouth and Mass General Hospital to Plymouth- train - seems to be about a little over an hour with a few a day- this one is easy

*Logan Airport to Plymouth- seem like the options are

1. T into city, train city to Plymouth

2. Looks like there is a ferry to Quincy and we can pick up by car in Quincy without going into the city traffic. Is the ferry really an option? Info?

3. Is there a reasonable car service or limo service? recommendations?

*NCY to Plymouth- there are several bus companies operating between Manhattan and Boston but are there any that stop south of Boston?

Thanks for helping to make this family birthday reunion sweeter.

I agree with the post about the ferries. The ferry to Hingham from Boston is about 1/2 hour. The trip from Hingham boat to route 3 is about 20 minutes. This point from route 3 to Plymouth is at least 20 minutes (more depending how far south you are staying in Plymouth). That being said, the ferry ride is relaxing (the Hingham boat ALSO serves alcohol). If the pick up was combined with a nice dinner in the Hingham harbor area, so much the better.

The P&B bus from Logan to Plymouth is the most stress-free ride. It should take about 1 hour to 1 hour & 15 minutes. However, it runs only every hour from Boston and the round trip cost is $60.

The Braintree/Logan Logan Express runs about every 1/2 hour and I think it's less expensive. The ride from Plymouth-Braintree is 1/2 hour.

The commuter rail to Kingston, MA is reliable, as well and would be $20 roundtrip.

I would check the P&B and Commuter rail schedules as they end around 11pm or midnight.

If it's a late night flight - could take the red line to Quincy Adams or Braintree - about 1/2 hour from there.

For the New Yorkers, if you didn't want them going to Boston and then another hour to the Plymouth area, they could take the Amtrak train to the Route 128 station in Canton/Westwood. While it's still a 45 minute drive from Plymouth, if you want to avoid the hassle of driving into Boston, you may like this option a little better? It's also the stop outside of Boston, so it would be a shorter ride from New York to this station. Just watch the time of day as there is commuting traffic along 128 and Route 3 to contend with. I'm not sure what the Providence to New York options are, but Providence to NYC is about 3 hours. Plymouth to Providence is a 45 minute drive and is less "hectic" than the Boston commute.

This is an old post. Travel question was for June. Long gone.
