Board the ferry, enjoy a beverage, arrive at destination. Trolley there at dock if needed. Close enough to walk.
It took only an hour each way to get back and forth. Great way to get to Salem and back.
Ferry trip to Salem was a great way to travel. Crew was entertaining and ferry was very comfortable
Superb way to get to Boston from Salem. Very comfortable and efficient. All the staff were friendly.
Clean cabinet, friendly staff, very informational commentary through the trip.
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.
An absolute must-do. Beautiful 55 minute sail from Boston to Salem, see gorgeous homes on Marblehead, and soak up some sea air.
Employees very friendly. Narrator did a great job - pointing out landmarks along the way and providing some general information about Salem before we arrived.
We've taken this tour years ago and it is still a great way to spend some time on the water, get some sun, listen to the narration at the beginning/end of the journey, and spend a few hours in Boston. Be aware that boats can easily sell out during the busy summer weekends as we found out. Technically, our voucher was not a reservation but, even though the 1PM was sold out as were other voyages, they took us aboard.
A great day out with a wonderful boat and first rate crew...as we arrived to board the ferry, the reception desk asked me to email them the voucher, so the only EBI even better if.. would be for Viator to let you know you're meant to email the ferry company with the voucher beforehand, to save last minute blips with wifi signal etc. but other an that this was a BRILLIANT day.
The ferry from Boston to Salem was a wonderful experience. The ferry arrived on time and featured a lively tour guide who provided an interesting commentary. We thoroughly enjoyed the return trip to Boston on the 7:00 p.m. ferry. The cityscape looked beautiful as the lights reflected on the water. This proved to be a fun and fast way to enjoy two cities on one day.
That was the best way to get into to Boston!!!! My first experience, I loved it. Will do it again.
It was excellent .. the staff were not only helpful but made it great fun .. perfect !!
Great transportation, never been to Salem, and was a smooth trip going.
