The Block Island Ferry is the only year-round ferry service to Block Island. Based in Point Judith, (Narragansett), Rhode Island, the ferry offers traditional ferry service, (55 minute voyage) as well as the fastest ferry trip from the mainland on the High speed ferry service, (30 minute cruise). It’s the only vehicle ferry service to Block Island, transporting passenger vehicles, commercial trucks as well as shipping freight. You can bring pets on both the Hi-Speed and Traditional Ferries, as long they’re either in their carrier or leashed.
Traditional: Pets are permitted on board the ferry but must remain on a leash or in a carrier at all times. Pets are not permitted on the seats or benches inside the cabins.
Hi-Speed (Pt. Judith, Newport, Fall River): Pets are permitted in the cabin in a pet carrier only. Pets that are not in a pet carrier must be on a leash and remain on the outside decks.
