I have used the Cross Sound Ferry often between New York and Connecticut. Recently, I became temporarily (I hope) disabled and have had to use a wheelchair and now a Walker. The staff has always been very helpful and accommodating. I even ended up on a boat without an elevator and the staff carried my Walker up the stairs (I... More

Each December 7th, The VFW, American Legion and the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Northport VA Hospital participate in ceremonial wreath drop in the L.I.Sound. Cross Sound Ferry honors us by stopping the ferry for a 5 minute wreath placement on the water.

Traveling to New England via the Cross Sound Ferry is a nice option. The scenic ride to the ferry along the north fork of Long Island is very picturesque. However, most of the ride east of Riverhead is a one lane road, and you pray that you do not have a farmer riding his tractor or someone driving well below... More

Self-park is very accessible with on-site snack bar. The trip is only a/b 40-45 minutes with buses waiting for Mohegan or Foxwoods. We played bingo on thee boat which made the trip even more fun. The coffee and snacks are good and not overpriced. This is a safe and comfortable way to go. The price is great..

We did an "out and back" ferry trip on the Fourth of July to travel with a friend back to CT. It was a great trip watching the fireworks over Long Island sound on the holiday. :)

While the Ferry was on time, the seating was very dirty. Dust/particles were coming down from the heater and landing on us. Ripped and stained seats. But it did leave and get us to our destination on time.

I traveled to the Boston area from Long Island this week for business. the drive is long, but breaking it up with the approx 90 minute ferry from Orient Point to New London Connecticut made the trip enjoyable... both ways. Employees were helpful, getting on the ship and loading the cars is very organized, and I found these ferries to... More
