“Magic!”
Reviewed 13 October 2012

Recommend this for everyone who visits Norwalk. It's a gentle cruise out and back to the Lighthouse. Perfect for a sunset journey, plenty of information for those who want it and very obliging crew.

“kids might like the trip”
Reviewed 8 September 2012

The family found nothing to do on the island. That part was disappointing. Trouble with parking. That may or may not have changed. KIds had never been on a ferry so that was a highlight for as long as it lasted. I recall it being pricy. -- what isn't now a days?

“Sheffield Island is so relaxing and beautiful!”
Reviewed 26 August 2012

I took the ferry with my family on a Sunday in August, and I really enjoyed it! The trip out and back from the island is so scenic, and the tour guide filled us in on lots of information about the local waterfront. Sheffield island itself is very pretty, with great views and a very nice lighthouse that you can tour. I highly recommend the trip for a couples day trip or a family outing.

“Surprising Norwalk”
Reviewed 4 August 2012

Norwalk has about 16 islands making a cute archipelago just about a mile offshore. The tidiest way to see them, and even get out on one to walk around a bit, is the Sheffield Island Ferry. Bring your own sunblock and a snack, cuz there are VERY few amenities on the island. But, wow what a surprise; islands off Norwalk. Pick a day with nice weather and the trip will just make you smile.

“Ferry in July was lovely on the water”
Reviewed 25 July 2012

Took about an hour, and was lots of fun on a beautiful July day.
Had a snack at the snack bar, but wished there was more food to buy. Nonetheless, the scenery was lovely right on the Long Island Sound, The boat ride back was equally enjoyable.
