2013 Block Island Ferry Schedule

Newport High Speed Ferry To Old Harbor

We are pleased to announce the introduction of a hi-speed ferry service between Newport and Block Island that will begin operation on June 29th 2013.  Travel time between the two ports will take approximately one hour & 10 minutes on a hi-speed aluminum catamaran ferry.

The new service will offer multiple crossings a day to travelers. For the first time, riders from Block Island will have the opportunity to depart in the morning, enjoy a full day in Newport, and return to Block Island in the evening.  Riders from Newport will have the same opportunity to enjoy a full day on Block Island. The ferry will be departing and arriving from Perrotti Park in downtown Newport!
