Boarded the ferry on the morning run and were docked with our bikes within 50 minutes. Our return in the early evening was just as quick. Comfortable padded seats were available as the ferry was not overly crowded.

The New London ferry is of course closer to you, less driving longer on the water. It is a high speed ferry, passengers only, no cars. You need to make a reservation for that ferry as they do sell out. Parking is not simple... More
