Rhode Island Fast Ferry has applied to the Rhode Island Division of Public Utilities and Carriers for a license to begin a new, high-speed ferry service between North Kingstown’s Quonset Point and Block Island.

If granted the license, the company would spend $6 million to $7 million on a new aluminum catamaran that would run 2- to 4-round trips daily during the summer season. The 30-mile ride would last roughly 45 to 50 minutes.
