Shelter Island

Getting Here and Around

The North Ferry and the South Ferry service Shelter Island from Long Island's North and South forks. The North Ferry, which leaves from Greenport, is the best way to get to the Chequit Inn and other places in Shelter Island Heights from the North Fork. The fare is $9 one way for a car and driver, and a same-day round-trip is $13. The South Ferry leaves from Sag Harbor; the fare (cash only) is $7 one way for a car and driver, and a same-day round-trip is $8. On both ferries, pedestrians and additional car passengers pay $2 each way. North and South ferry lines are prone to backups on summer weekends, in both directions.
