“Okay, getting there is not half the fun, but it's not half bad.”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

The BI high-speed ferry works. It is fast, convenient, comfortable, clean, efficient. Not too expensive--a discount for same-day round trips. The bartender makes a mean Bloody Mary. And the televisions are tuned to Headline News Network now, not Fox.

“Super convenient”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

The easiest and fastest way to get to Block Island from Connecticut. We always use this ferry. Cars are not allowed on this ferry, but bikes are no problem. It can get crowded during the first sail of the day and the sunset sail.

“It's only an hour”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Would prefer that walk ons be let off first. Astounding variety in cocktail menu, barely time to read it on the voyage. Didn't have any, but heard lots of good comments.

“Only 30 minute ride”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

If you can afford the extra cost, the express ferry is faster and more comfortable than the traditional one.
