A thoroughly enjoyable experience

As a family of three we travelled to Salem by Fast Ferry, exceptional service and the guide on board described various points of interest throughout the journey. An added bonus! Word of advice though, it is called a Fast Ferry, so you may want to take a hoodie or jacket with you to combat the sea breeze!

A nice ride! Comfortable and informative.

Great ride! Some nice history info given by the captain upon departure but not too much. Great seating, grab an inside booth in the fall! Brrrr! A little tricky to get to the boat from the ticket booth with the whale on top. Walk ALL THE WAY through the hotel when they tell you to go that way. The next booth to turn your voucher into an actual ticket, and the boat itself is on the other side.
