Salem Ferry Delays Opening til June 11

The Salem Ferry will not begin operation this weekend (Memorial Day) as scheduled. The city is building a new wharf and weather has delayed completion of the first phase of the project. Instead service will begin on Saturday, June 11. Details here:

That's too bad. But thanks for the info.

You may want to also post this on the Boston forum.

Good idea. I'll post it in the Salem forum as well. Do you remember anyone to whom we specifically suggested the ferry for this weekend (or next)? I looked through old posts and didn't notice anyone. The website says that they are trying to contact folks who reserved tickets. Hope they reach them. Given the infrequent train service on the weekend, finding out late about the ferry will throw a monkey wrench into some plans.

RT 128,

Thanks for posting.This is not a good thing especially for the Memorial Day Weekend.

Do you know what are they doing to the port beside paving the parking lot?

I don't remember any specific posters. I generally say "train or ferry" to people.

For what it's worth, there are trains leaving North Station for Salem at 8:30, 9:30 and 10:15 and 11:30 on Saturdays and Sundays ... as well as others throughout the day, so it shouldn't be too bad to change plans, as long as people know about it.

It's a multi-phase project that rebuilds the whole ferry landing area and when completed, will make the landing even friendlier to visitors. Here's a link to an article in the Salem News that explains a little more. Please note: The article is out-of-date. The ferry is NOT opening Friday, May 27.
