Town of Greenwich Ferry Service Starts Saturday, June 13 (SCHEDULE)

Screen Shot 2014-08-11 at 10.30.26 AMFerry service to Island Beach and Great Captain’s Island starts on Saturday, June 13.

At the April Parks & Rec board meeting, Superintendent of Marine Facilities and Operations, Jeff Freitag, said that last year there were 540,000 visitors to Greenwich Point, 56,000 visitors to Byram Beach, 36,000 at Island beach and 3,300 at Great Captain’s Island.

The boats underwent general maintenance over the winter. The Islander II, for example, had some hull plating issues, needed new bilge piping.” None of you will ever see that because it’s all below deck,” said Freitag. However, he said the old wooden bench seating was all replaced with aluminum fiberglass seating, which requires less maintenance on the crew’s part than the wood bench seating, and is significantly more comfortable.

Mr. Freitag said the town’s three ferries are aging, but have been well maintained.
