Planning on traveling to Salem this Halloween season? Why not do it in style? Boston Harbor Cruises wishes to take you on an exquisite ferry ride if you plan to travel to Salem from the Boston area. The BHC Fast Ferry sets sail from Boston’s Long Wharf and in just less than an hour you’ll arrive in the heart of the famous seaside city.

The ferry leaves multiple times a day and holds up to 149 passengers and travels up to 33 knots getting you to Salem in a timely manner. The ship holds two separate decks for passengers to enjoy. The first deck has booth seating, as well as a galley with a few restrooms. The second deck features a partially enclosed area with benches to sit on and tables along with a wide-open space to get some fresh air and enjoy the cruise.

Once you arrive in the Witch City you can leave the ship to enjoy all the historical charm of the area without the hassle of parking or traffic. You will be able to experience all Salem has to offer from its amazing museums to the fabulous dining options. You could even check out any Halloween themed events and goings-on in this Halloween Town—from Salem’s scariest haunted house, Chamber of Terror, to the Haunted Happenings Carnival.
