The ferry service is always on time, be sure that you arrive on time. The boats are clean even the restrooms. There are coloring books and crayons for children. Each boat has a history, one even from WWII.

Although expensive with a carload of people, it's a pretty ride out east and very relaxing once you have your water view seat. The parking guides are very helpful when driving your car onto the ferry. Organized and efficient.

Love the sea jet ferry, especially for day trips to Mohegan or Foxwood! Takes about 40 minutes compared to the car carrying ferry which is roughly 80 minutes. Food and drink is what you would expect, and staff on board is friendly.

Use the ferry many times to & from LI, NY. to New London, Ct. I have family outside Hartford, CT. Really takes traffic pressure away. Dine on board is fair on prices & good. I book on line for discounts & special offers.

I believe so since there are Large trucks on the ferry , I d strongly suggest not relying on this answer alone but calling the ferry company directly , cost might make it more economical to just drive ,
