Salem, Massachusetts (of Salem Witch Trials fame) continues to be a favorite weekend getaway from Boston, and the Salem Ferry offers a fast route from the city direct to the the seaside town. In less than an hour, the high-speed Salem Ferry offers transportation back and forth between the two Massachusetts destinations. Weather-permitting, the outdoor lounge is a great place to take in ocean views during the journey. There is also comfortable indoor seating, as well as a small galley serving food and drinks.

This historic area of New England is home to a proud nautical tradition, as one of the oldest seaports in colonial America. As such, lighthouses, quaint homes, and historic ships are some of the things that make this area so beautiful to visit. The Salem Ferry journey by high-speed catamaran is quick and comfortable, so it’s even possible to do a day trip from Boston.

Practical Info

From Boston, catch the ferry at Long Wharf. The journey to Salem takes just about an hour and docks at Blaney Street in Salem. Ferries run up to six times a day in both directions, and it’s best to check the schedule ahead of time.
