We arrived in Salem by train but the ferry back was worth the extra money. Relaxing ride back to Boston with great views of the harbour and planes arriving and departing from Boston. Recmmended

The parking was easy, the ride to Boston was very quick, under 45 minutes. I really like the room and speed of the boat.

It's a really nice trip to take from Boston to Salem, there's seats with tables and they're comfy. You can also go outside and take pictures with the Salem background or with the Boston Skyline

This really makes the day in Boston! I try to do this anytime company visits. It's such a fun way to get to the heart of the city with no hassles with traffic or parking. Great info given on the boat too!

Used the ferry to travel into Boston, ideal, no parking charges, no traffic problems and it delivers you right on the Boston water front, ideal.

Great way to get to Salem, hop on at Boston, the ferry takes and hour or so, during which a running commentary tells you abou the island and the places you are passing

There is a parking garage next to the Aquarium (a great take for families) which is next to the dock where you get the ferry to Salem. It is not inexpensive, but there is a cap (which we hit) of approx. $40 for the 10 hours... More
