The trip from Point Judith to Block Island on the traditional ferry takes about an hour each way and it is a very enjoyable ride. Wear plenty of sunscreen and bring a sweatshirt because it is breezy on the open water. We like sitting on the top level out in the sunshine taking in the scenery. There are a couple... More

Took the Block Island Ferry to see Block Island for the first time. The ferry leaves on schedule for a reasonable price (better than swimming!). It has plenty of seating, both in shade and sun, washrooms, and snack bar (which is licensed). Return trip was on time too and gives you a nice view of the bluffs and sunset.

As we pull into the lot to line up for the ferry....even my dog is smiling. We all know we're on our way to a great week of hiking, biking, sun and fun. Block island is the perfect escape. The ferry is only the beginning. The staff is professional from the moment you make your reservations....till you drive your car... More
