Dear Seastreak Customers,
We are proud to announce that, beginning December 5th, Seastreak services will be expanding to now include ferry transportation operating from the Monmouth County Belford Ferry Terminal and the West side of Manhattan.
The award of this new contract, issued by Monmouth County, will allow Seastreak to offer County residents the highest level of waterborne commuting departures, even surpassing NJ Transit train service during rush hour. Residents will now have the option of 22 daily trips departing from Monmouth County and the East/West side of Manhattan. These new routes for Seastreak will be offered in addition to Seastreak’s existing service between Highlands/Atlantic Highlands and Manhattan. All routes will utilize the same tickets. There will also be Belford-only one-way and round-trip tickets offered at a discount. Riders using Belford only tickets will be required to originate and return by ferry to Belford.
Seastreak will connect its terminals in Atlantic Highlands and Highlands with the Belford ferry terminal by offering a free shuttle bus. This shuttle bus service will give Seastreak commuters leaving Manhattan the flexibility to return to their vehicles at any of the three New Jersey terminals from which they originated.
Passengers will now be able to depart from all Seastreak Terminals in NJ and have the option of utilizing connecting ferry services at select landings in Manhattan free of charge. There will be options for passengers departing from Belford to connect to East 35th Street and for passengers departing Atlantic Highlands or Highlands to connect with Brookfield Place and West 39th Street.
Seastreak will utilize its reliable fleet of high-speed ferries outfitted with plush seating, spacious indoor/outdoor areas, and climate-controlled cabins with full-service bars. Seastreak will also be expanding its seasonal excursions to include departures from the Belford terminal. Seastreak looks forward to providing the Belford commuter community with the same high level of service and commitment that the company has provided to its riders for over three decades. Traveling between Monmouth County and Manhattan by water is far faster, cleaner, and more convenient than other methods of transportation. Seastreak looks forward to working with Monmouth County to serve the County’s residents. We are committed to providing safe and reliable transportation in the years to come and thank our riders for their continued support.
Seastreak, LLC, a privately owned company headquartered in Atlantic Highlands NJ, owns and operates the largest fleet of modern high-speed ferries on the eastern seaboard, providing a wide range of offerings, including commuter services and cruise excursions.
