The ac was too fast there was no staff in the ferry to talk to and the way they’ve Threw the baggage was absurd. I flew back to pennag. I didn’t want to catch the ferry again
Ferry Ferry, Super Fast Ferry Ventures, Feb 10, 2020
Once we got our ticket, things went smoothly. They loaded us over a 30 minute period. People directing the loading were nice and helpful. The layout surprised us but once we got over the surprise, seating was OK, like tight economy class on an airplane. We were at the back with no windows. The boat did speed along at a good clip. We would take the boat again.
