Planning Your Trip

Fire Island is open and waiting for us to bring you there! Before your arrival, we kindly ask that you review the following Travel Tips & Information to prepare for the journey with us.

Budget Extra Time

Save yourself the headache and build in extra time to park, unload your luggage, purchase your tickets, and get settled before boarding the ferry to Fire Island.

Leave The Car Behind

With the increased traffic to Fire Island during the summer season, parking is extremely limited. If possible, it is highly recommended to take public transportation or an Uber. With our latest Uber integration, you can purchase your ferry tickets within the Uber app.

Skip the Lines

Save time & download the Ferry Ticket App (FI mTickets) to pre-purchase your tickets and bypass the ticket line.

Looking to avoid the crowds? Moving In?

Water Taxi Crossbay service is available to take you from Bay Shore to your Fire Island destination. If moving in, water taxi move in packages are available to get you and your belongings to Fire Island on your time. Call them at 631.665.8885 or visitFire Island Water Taxi to inquire about the Cross-Bay service.

Pack Smart

Our Luggage Policy has recently been updated to better serve the communities and to protect our passengers and staff. Find out what you can bring with you on the ferry and what needs to go on the freight boat by clicking here.

If your luggage surpasses the per-person limitation, or you are bringing over non-essential items, you may have to bring it over to the freight house by the Main Terminal. This could add time to your travel so plan accordingly.
