According to the modes of travel researched for the DOT study, ferry boars are far and away the safest way to travel. Are boats safer than planes? In general, yes. While the type of boat will make a difference, the low incidence of fatalities involving ferry boats bodes well for other types of pleasure boats, including liners.
During the years covered in this study, there were four deaths that involved travel on ferry boats. In short, using a ferry to get where you want to go is one of the safest ways to travel.
