Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a reservation?

No. Ferry boats travel between Shelter Island and North Haven constantly. It's first come, first served. Just drive up, wait for the next available vessel, and follow crew directions.

Does my South Ferry ticket work on the North Ferry, or vice versa?

No. The South Ferry and the North Ferry are two separate companies, each with their own separate tickets.

When and how do I pay for my ticket?

You can pay for your ticket onboard the ferry. A crew member will approach you to take your fare. You may pay with cash or a check. Credit cards, debit cards, or other payment methods are not presently accepted.

Are fares the same year round?

Yes. We do not have seasonal rates.

Are there any discounts available?

Yes. Discounts are available for residents or commuters. We also sell prepaid tickets in books of 10. Please see the passes page for details.
