What You Can Expect

Salem High-Speed Ferry

View of Salem

Boston or Salem? If that has to be the question, the answer is … both. Ditch the traffic and enjoy both historic cities with the help of a speedy ferry. A one-way or round-trip ticket provides a quick journey along Massachusetts Bay, scenery included. Think fishing boats, lighthouses and beautiful homes here and there. It sure beats bumper-to-bumper traffic and angry car horns. The journey takes less than an hour.

On board this catamaran, which holds up to 149 passengers, enjoy the sights and sounds from the upper or lower deck, or just relax inside with a beverage or snack. Breakfast or lunch is always ready.

Upon arrival in Salem, it’s a short stroll to top attractions like the House of Seven Gables and the Peabody Essex Museum. At the other end in Boston, the New England Aquarium, the Old North Church, Quincy Market and more are within walking distance.

Great way to get to Salem. Loved the place. Great witchy kitsch. Free trolley from harbour into centre is very welcome. Tourist information centre is great for getting bearings. Character actors in costume wander the street saying Good Morrow which was fun. Easy to change voucher for ticket at harbour kiosk by the Marriott hotel. Recommend café at corner of Essex and Washington St in Salem and their apple and cinnamon French toast.

This is the perfect way to get around and see other cities in MA. We took this Ferry to Salem then booked another trip to Provincetown, MA. Quick trip on a gorgeous day. Got to Salem in under an hour while admiring beautiful scenery. The staff is super nice and helpful. BOOK THIS FERRY!

Good way to get to Salem. One small glitch - when I made the reservation, it apparently assigned me a specific departure time, which was not communicated to me. Fortunately, it was not a busy day and the person at the ticket booth was able to switch the tickets for me at no additional cost or inconvenience. I would do this again.
