First time on this ferry, I loved it. Older boat, but we got there safely. Block Island is amazing, we had a wonderful time there. Will be using this ferry again soon.

The ferry gets you there. Have to line up early to get seating at a table. Carpet odor - need to replace. Staff were there - no customer service really.

We took the boat with our bikes, which was nice. Inside, you can seat comfortably, or stand on the deck in the back where you get a lot of wind and nice views of the waves. We loved it!

We went to Block Island for the day and the ferry was everything we expected and more. The trip lasted about an hour and 25 minutes with gorgeous views. They have a bar on the boat with good drinks. Will definitely be using them again...More

Hard to drag a suitcase thru the unpaved parking lot, but the ride itself was terrific... good seating, very quick trip.

An enjoyable, fast efficient way to travel to Block island. You can park nearby and if you take the early morning ferry you can spend the day and return in the evening.
