Fire Island Ferries Inc.


Fire Island Ferries Inc. service cancellation should come as no surprise to anyone who has been following the foul weather this weekend. Amazed they kept the boats running just prior to the holiday as things were already getting treacherous. There is also no freight service on Monday, Dec. 26, as planned in advance.
Fire Island Ferries Inc. commuters certainly have noticed some renovations underway at the main terminal these days. Riders may or may not have community access from the ferry slip they are accustomed to and a trailer is offering temporary restroom facilities. We look forward to seeing the result of their efforts.
Fire Island Ferries Inc. seems to have found themselves a new mascot. Anyone know this friendly guy? They would like to reunite him with his person if possible. Visit their Instagram page to learn more.
Hurry up and hop the Fire Island Ferries before the sun sets on summer!
Does anyone know if strollers are allowed on the ferry?

Beginning May 14, we will revert back to our policy of NO building supplies on the Saturday freight boat.
