SouthBay Clipper to Fire Island

SouthBay Clipper to Fire Island | New York, Fire Island |  so you may ask yourself how do I get to Fire Island ? Well here is how. (1). Take the Long Island Railroad from Penn Station to Sayville. Transfer trains in Jamaica or Babylon Station. Check Fares and Itineraries here. (2).  At Sayville Station a $5 bus will be waiting to take you to Fire Island ferry. If you are traveling off-peak season, call Colonial Taxi at 631-589-3500 for a lift to the ferry. (3). Take the Fire Island Pines ferry which is $14 roundtrip. Schedules are listed here. Travel time fro NYC to Fire Island Pines: 2 – 2.5 hours. FYI on the boat you are allowed to bring pets for an extra charge (of course they know we love our pets right)
They have announced other alternative ways to get to PINES for the season like the FIPBUS. But I have checked their website and at the moment is down. – We’ll take you to the Pines and back for only $20 a ride. The FIP BUS is part of our Fire Island 101 program that introduces newbies to the Pines. If you’ve never been to Fire Island, you have no idea what you’re missing.
Been to all of them Provincetown, Asbury Park among other gay hot spots in the United States… and for accessibility, fun and beauty I personally have Fire Island Pines on the TOP of my list. CM
