Connecticut River Ferries Resume Operations April 1
The Connecticut River ferries – between Rocky Hill and Glastonbury, and Chester and Hadlyme – will resume operations for the season on Saturday, April 1. Ferry operations are always subject to service interruptions due to weather conditions and high water.
These popular ferries operate daily each year from April 1 to November 30.
The Rocky Hill/Glastonbury ferry is the oldest continuously operated ferry in America, having begun service in 1655. The Chester/Hadlyme ferry opened in 1769.
The Rocky Hill/Glastonbury ferry will be closed on Mondays, at least for the time being, due to staffing issues.
Additional information on the ferries – including fares, schedules and history – may be found on the Connecticut Department of Transportation website, www.ct.gov/dot.
