Nice free ride across the sound. We went just. Little bit out of our way for a free free ferry ride on a sunny day. There's air conditioning inside which was a bonus because it is hot out there.

Enjoyed the upper deck to sit and admire the water! Smooth ride, clean cabin seating area, and nice staff.
