If the weather is good, and you have time, take this ferry from the wharf near the New England Aquarium in Boston to Salem, or go the other way. It takes about as long as it does to drive without the hassles of driving on...More
We made plans for the Salem Ferry to Boston, and went in early AM to get the commuter rate. The lady at the desk for some reason argued with us about the rate- she noted we were tourists and not commuters because we wanted 1...More
The ferry ride ended up being one of the most memorable parts of my trip to Salem. We really enjoyed the fresh air and views from the ship as well as the commentary provided by the crew. The bar on board was great for drinks...More

The ferry to Salem was fairly quiet however the return ferry was packed and very loud.
It was an enjoyable journey.

Why take the train, or take your chances with a Lyft or Uber driver on the freeway or 1A, when the ferry and their professional crew can bypass all that? We've taken the ferry several times between Boston and Salem, and have enjoyed the trip...More
We booked the boat a few days in advance. Long Wharf can be a little difficult to find. As you are standing on the street side sidewalk looking at the Marriott Long Wharf, go to the LEFT side of the hotel and that is where...More
we choose to take the ferry across to salem as an added experience and even though it was rainy it was still fun, it did clear up on the way back and the views were beautiful, we got to see boston from the water at...More
Yes, but there would be no realistic opportunity to store your luggage on the ship while you're exploring the area. The ferry has a pretty tight schedule doing round-trips between Salem and Boston all day.
I don't think that's necessary. The ferry seems to run on a very tight schedule and isn't even there until about 10 minutes before departure. Then they have to disembark. I doubt they would give your seats away and also... More
I don't think that's necessary. The ferry seems to run on a very tight schedule and isn't even there until about 10 minutes before departure. Then they have to disembark. I doubt they would give your seats away and also doubt that it's sold out. Wasn't even close when we were there in June.

When we took the ferry the seats were not assigned. Perhaps the reason for the early arrival is to help ensure you get the time you want?? The area around the gate is filled with many interesting and fun... More
When we took the ferry the seats were not assigned. Perhaps the reason for the early arrival is to help ensure you get the time you want?? The area around the gate is filled with many interesting and fun things to see and do so burning out that 45 minutes is not hard to do nor is it boring.
We really enjoyed the ferry ride and would do it again.
