Onboard Your Commute
What is Priority Boarding and when do you do it?
Unless otherwise noted, the Captain of each vessel will determine if priority boarding will be utilized based upon the volume of customers observed to be waiting to board a given departure. If priority boarding is required, ticket book holders will be boarded first. Of these, 40-trip ticket book holders will be first to board, followed by 10-trip ticket book holders.
In order for 40-trip and 10-trip ticket book holders to participate in priority boarding, you must present your ticket book cover along with your ticket. In the absence of a ticket book cover, customers with 40-trip and 10-trip tickets will be boarded next along with customers holding other ticket types.
No one-way or round-trip tickets will be sold for priority boarded departures until all ticket holders are boarded.
Can I bring my pet aboard?
We love our pets and we’re glad you do too! We welcome dogs and cats onboard many of our trips, but they must be kept on the outdoor decks with a leash. Small dogs in a carrier can be brought inside the vessel. Service dogs are permitted onboard. Pets are not permitted on any Special Event trip, or our NJ/NYC service to Martha’s Vineyard/Nantucket.
Do you have food and drinks for sale onboard?
Yes! All Seastreak ferries have a full cash bar serving spirits, beer, wine and soft drinks as well as bagged snacks. We allow passengers to bring food onboard, we just ask that you do not bring hard coolers onboard.
Do you have any beverage specials on Fridays?
Yes! We offer a Friday “Appe” Hour! “Appe” Hour will be on the following New York City departures:
- 4:15pm E. 35th St. / 4:40pm Wall St.
- 5:10pm E. 35th St. / 5:30pm Wall St.
- 6:00pm E. 35th St. / 6:15pm Wall St.
An assortment of beer, wine, liquor, and snacks will be available for purchase.
Is the boat enclosed?
The Seastreak catamarans have either two or three decks. The Lower Deck is entirely indoor, the Second Deck is half indoor and half outdoor, and the Third Deck is entirely outdoor.
