“A fun ride”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

This ferry is a catamaran and is very fast. It is a lot of fun to see the coastline north of Boston from the water and try to guess what each body of land is.

“Fast”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

The ferry took us from Hingham to Salem in less than an hour, and then back on a perfect time. We had time to see everything we wanted and it was super convenient with the ferry!

“Nice travelling”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Great way to get to salem. Our captain was fantastic. As we left Boston, we were travelling in a shroud of fog. At no point did we feel unsafe and the trip was all the more exciting heading to the mystical city of salem. Access to both Boston and Salem is very easy from the ports.

“Great little trip”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

The boat trip is very enjoyable and it feels like it takes a lot less than the aproximately 55 minutes from Boston...I enjoyed it a lot!
