December & January schedules are available for reservations.
We recommend making ALL vehicle and passenger reservations in advance. Passenger capacity limits remain in effect. Masks and Social Distancing required. Per the RI Governor’s Office ferries are limited to 60% capacity (90 passengers) on fair weather days and 40% capacity (60 passengers) on inclement weather days. Passengers in vehicles DO count towards total vessel passenger capacity. All ferries are currently set for 60 passengers and capacity will be increased to 90 passengers (no more than 2 days prior) if weather is going to be clear. If there is potential for rain, capacity will only be increased at ferry time as the weather allows. Day of tickets may be available at the ticket booth in the event of cancellations. There is no standby list, standby is first come first served and you must be present at the terminal to be placed on standby.
