Ah, the ferry....the new reservation system is streamlined and easier to use, the boats are the same as always, which means slow and dependable, and clean...restrooms antique but adequate for a beach facility...distinctly not modern....they have installed tv's which serve to entertain maybe six people and annoy the rest...there are never quite enough tables unless you are traveling off season,...

Nothing fancy about the boat or the ride. Better than driving around the island. Nice view and in the summer its nice to sit up top and enjoy the ride

As a senior the round trip rate of $20 is reasonable. My husband and I travel 3/4 times per yr because our son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren live in Long Island. Free parking and shuttle at the Bridgeport dock. Both docks are clean and employees polite. On the Ferry everything is neat, clean and the ride is enjoyable. I'm going again... More

We have used the ferry service for years by driving on and continuing on a road trip. However our son had a playoff game in Bridgeport so a bunch of us walked on the ferry caught a cab to watch the game and walked back on to go home.

Been taking the ferry for 20+ years. They have the trip down to a science. Loading and unloading is a breeze. There are plenty of seats and tables on deck, with a snack bar and a lounge. Way better than driving through the Bronx and Queens.

The boat is very large and fits many guest comfortably as well as the ability to bring your vehicle on board for use once you depart. A lovely and easier way to get to CT and very scenic as you cross the LI Sound

Always a great experience! Always on time and organized. Very convenient for early morning trips as well with the onboard food service! Beats driving around and going through the city to get to our family in CT.

I liked the experience of taking the ferry very much. It saves so much time. Plus it's fun to be on the water for a period of your trip. Driving onto it was pretty easy. It was my first time using a ferry as a driver and I was nervous. The staff is fairly clear about what you need to... More

The ferry is a great ride from Port Jeff to Bridgeport. It makes travel to the Northeast so much easier. The kids love to grab a snack---they even have humus and fruit!. The view is beautiful. We have even jumped on the ferry to head to Westchester rather than cut over Manhattan! Highly recommended!

Save yourself the hassle of driving over the bridges and through the Bronx getting from New England to Long Island. Reserve a spot on the ferry. It's so much more relaxing than fighting everyone else in the roads. Get there a half hour before sailing time. If you have passengers in your car who can do walk-on to get a... More
