Only an hour long trip over to the island. Do not judge them based on whether the sea was rough; it is not their fault! Always a wonderful experience, and every time I see the ferry I'm excited to go back to the Block.

Boat clean and crew obviously works to keep it that way. Small snackbar that has usual snacks and sodas. It too was neat and clean.
