Although there are cheaper possibilities to get to Salem from Boston by train or bus, I decided to go by fast ferry. And I didn't regret. It is not just a transportation from place to place, it is an exciting valuable part of the trip....More

This one hour cruise is worth every penny! It takes you from Boston harbor to Salem. The scenery is beautiful. Looks just like a post card. You can sit outside the ferry or inside. This was one of our favorite things we did.

We stayed in Salem and took a one day trip to Boston. The ferry was easy to get tickets, dropped and picked up in the heart of Boston. It was awesome as were all the stAff.

We enjoyed our round trip ferry to Boston. We were able to stay much cheaper in Salem and enjoy both cities. We took the commuter ferry, which is considerably cheaper than going during other times. You must take the 7 a.m. from Salem to Boston...More

We loved the short trip from Boston to Salem! 45-1 hour trip, easy to purchase tickets, and included a short and surprisingly insightful tour guide session about the surrounding landmarks. Cons: you couldn't always hear the guide over the boat and the commotion of drunken...More

Not sure, but for one night parking was free. My guess is yes based on the fact that it didn't look like they scrutinized the Salem parking.
