Took the ferry on our trip to Boston. It is a little pricey and does not save any time but it is the only way to go. I love the break in the driving. It was a great and relaxing trip

We took the Cross Sound Ferry twice this summer: from New London to Orient Point in June and from Orient Point to New London in July. It is a restful, beautiful alternative to driving (and aggravation on the interstate). There are different sizes of ferries:...More

Great way to spend 3 hours on a summer day. We were about to get close to each light house and the narration that accompanied the sail was entertaining and informative. There is a snack bar and gift shop on the ship-or you can pack...More

I took the ferry from Orient Point to New London for a weekend trip to Mystic Seaport. The ride was so much better than driving. The ferry was probably faster than driving and certainly more pleasant. It added a dimension of adventure to my trip....More

We missed our lighthouse tour and they graciously gave us tickets to ride the ferry and refunded our money. Lovely staff! We still got to take a trip on the water and see lighthouses and enjoy the sun!

They actually have pretty good food on the ferry. Quick trip about 1hr 20min point to point. If you're worry about your schedule, pay the extra $16 and get priority loading/unloading. I was 2nd on/off the first trip and 1st on/off the 2nd trip.

I've been taking this ferry (though not too frequently) for at least two decades. It's fabulous in good weather. If the sea is rough my mother (who I usually travel with on this ferry) recommends we take the Port Jeff Ferry instead because it's path...More

The ferry is excellent, scenic and extremely useful. But by far the best part, if you have time, before or after your voyage, is to walk in Orient Village - surely the prettiest village in NY, and possibly the entire US (parts of Beaufort SC...More

I Always enjoy traveling on the ferry whether it is for work or pleasure. Avoids traffic and is peaceful and relaxing. Maybe not always a time saver but always great for sanity! It is a bit expensive, but when you can, I always recommend it....More

I would call the ferry, they could tell you. I'm thinking that you would probably need reservations. Good luck!

Me and my daughter took it in February and we had fun. The food is very good on this ferry! And it was warm not cold at all if you stayed inside!
