The Cross Sound Ferry is the quickest way to get from New England to the North Fork of Long Island and back. Ferries depart every day from New London, CT (just a few miles off of I-95) and drop off in Orient Point, NY.
Regular Ferry Service takes about 80 minutes and you can travel with or without your car. If you are looking for a faster alternative, Cross Sound Ferry also operates a high-speed passenger-only ferry service that takes only 40 minutes.
The ferry actually becomes part of the fun adventure for a family trip. Kids are welcome on board and can pickup an activity book with crayons or purchase a 99 cent pair of 3x kid-friendly binoculars on board the regular ferry service to make the trip even more fun. Snacks and Beverages are also available to purchase.
Cross Sound Ferry has offers up to 55% off (as low as $22.95 for car and a driver) in 2014 when you sign up for a free Cross Sound Rewards membership.
