CT to Long Island via Ferry

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will be in CT for a few days and are thinking of taking the ferry over to Long Island since we have never been to that area of NY. Figured we would make a day trip out of it, head over there first thing and come back in the evening. I'f looked at the ferry webpage but just wanted to get anyones take on the use and experience of the ferry. Looks like Point Jefferson would be the logical ferry instead of the Orient. Have not looked up things I'd want to do while in Long Island, so I guess it would depend on what areas we'd spend our time. Maybe take one ferry in and the other out.

The cost seems a bit high, around $70 for two adults and a car. Not sure if that is round trip or one way.

Our base for the trip is the Hartford area.
