Ferry Waitlist

Is there a way to get on the waitlist when everything is sold out? It says you have to choose an available trip to be put on the waitlist for another one but there are none for our dates to pick from. :(

You should call Steamship Authority directly, you may be able to get on the wait list that way.

You need to make a reservation to get on the waitlist. It might have to be on a different day than what you really want. But you can't be on the waitlist without holding a reservation. Make a reservation for the day before, or whatever, if that is the closest.

Peoples' plans change all the time, the change their ferry,, or whatever. A huge amount of the vehicle traffic is local workers, local residents, companies carrying stuff back and forth. It's not all about tourists. Think of it as a commuter train with freight capacity and you'll have a better idea. This thing runs all year, it is not all about you.
