I use this ferry regularly in the summer - easy and fast. Gets a little crowded with tourists on occasion.

We loved being able to walk on, short ride over to MV and then picked up a rental and explored the island. Very nice. Be sure to return for the last ferry, early, early to get on.

Reasonably priced, quick trip to M.V. (Oak Bluffs) for passengers only (i.e., no autos). Bikes are allowed for a small additional charge. The boat runs like clockwork in the summer (and not at all in the winter) every 1.5 hours during the day. Parking can be expensive, but cheaper than the cost of a tow and ticket if you park... More

For those of us who live in Falmouth and do not need to take an auto to Martha's Vineyard - this is the only way to go. It is clean and fast with friendly service and a short walk from downtown Falmouth. You can bring bicycles if you wish. I highly recommend this as transportation to the Island, whether it... More

The best way to Martha's Vinyard. The staff is wonderful from ticket window to ferry. Just know they do not take credit cards or debit cards. Parking is a short walk away. You will enjoy!!!"

It was a pleasant ride to Martha's Vineyard when the 4 of us visited in mid October. The price was acceptable for the roundtrip voyage. Lots of seating and a comfortable ride. If we ever went to Martha's Vineyard again we would take this ferry.

We were going to opt out of a trip to Martha's Vineyard as the ferry prices seemed huge for a day trip but then we found the prices for the Island queen at $20 round trip. We drove from West Yarmouth to falmouth but it was worth it . Great , helpful crew, on time , loads of seating inside... More
