    Fast and friendly ferry and informative too! Would do again for a day trip to Salem. We took our luggage since this was our last stop on a 5 day trip and they had place to stow. Had some mimosas and enjoyed the view.

    Very prompt -- both leaving and returning. Courteous crew. Very nice way to get a good look at the Boston skyline. Nice way to travel to Salem--appreciate the scenery and its faster than driving, and no parking problems.

    It was a great way to travel from Boston to Salem. The guide on the ferry was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us a lot of history about what we saw.

    The Salem High-Speed Ferry was a great part of our experiences while we were in Boston! The Ferry was wonderful and our children loved the trip to and from Salem! Highly recommend this trip for a quick and easy way to go from Boston to Salem!

    The ferry trip from Boston to Salem, as well as the return trip were delightful not at all crowded on Father's Day!, and expedient. For those interested, they offer cold beer with a lime and wine, along with sandwiches, wraps and snacks. Salem was an absolute delight, mostly due to our avoidance of anything witchy and the discovery of one of the most beautiful and interesting museums we have visited in the US - The Peabody Essex. Do not miss it! Finally, dinner at Turner's Seafood was a delicious and delightful experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our day in Salem.
