Fast Ferry is truly a unique travel experience, offering first-class amenities and an incredible scenic ride along the Rhode Island and Massachusetts coastlines. Our fast ferry service allows visitors the ability to save a lot of time by eliminating the need to drive through summer traffic congestion and highway construction in Providence, Fall River, New Bedford and the busy Bourne Bridge on Cape Cod - not to mention the gasoline you will save! Traveling on our fast ferry from Rhode Island can save you between 2 and 3 hours of travel time each way compared to the other ferries in Massachusetts.
Quonset Point is located in North Kingstown, which is conveniently located to I-95, Providence Airport (PVD), Amtrak (KIN) Train Station, Newport, South County, Warwick, and Providence. Passengers who use our ferry service can take advantage of partnerships we have established including a Shuttle Service connecting our ferry terminal to the Providence Airport and the Kingston Amtrak Station. This shuttle service also makes flying into the Providence Airport more convenient than flying into busy Boston Logan Airport. Additionally we are working with Enterprise Car Rental to put together discounted rates for our passengers who plan on visiting Rhode Island.
