The best way to go between Salem and Boston with a 50 minute trip. Free Parking. Refreshing, especially on a hot day. Pricey BUT the secret of saving is to take the Salem to Boston at 7 am in the morning and return 5:30 PM- totaling $16 (Monday thru Fridays) rather than the regular $45.00. round trip. One exception... Fridays you can return at 5:30 or 8 PM. Alchole served, expensive, Can of Beer $5.00.

The Ferry is a one hour trip from Boston-Salem. My trip was canceled due to rough seas from the remnants of a hurricane. I rebooked the return from Salem to Boston. Glad I did. The train is faster, and cheaper, but approaching Boston by sea is a unique experience.

This is a great way to travel from Boston to Salem and back. The boat is pleasant and clean with plenty of seating. It takes only 55 minutes to do the trip. We all very much enjoyed the trip.

Stayed in Boston and booked ferry on line for a day trip to Salem. Booking was straight forward. Wharf was easy to find.
The ferry staff were efficient we left and arrived on time both ways.
The ferry was clean and offers a bar with snacks and drinks.
