The trip was very pleasant. It was a hot day and the cool ocean breezes were very refreshing. The whole trip took about one hour. Would not have minded riding on the ocean all day. The only problem was the time it took to board ship.

Good value for money, quick, clean and punctual - recommended for a day trip to the island. We paid to park at their compound near the dock in Falmouth which was convenient, although we could probably have parked in a side street for free. Worth it for the convenience though.

This is a good way to visit Martha's Vineyard. We caught the 9:00 returning at 3:45. Both ferries ran on time and ticketing/boarding was easy. TIPS 1) credit/debit cards are not accepted 2) parking at $20 is expensive but there are nearby free alternatives.

Thank you for your review. Just wanted to clarify that our parking rate is $15.00 per calendar day. We caution passengers from seeking out free parking in our surrounding area as vehicles may be towed at owner's expense by the area businesses that you may have suggested as a consideration. We hope we have the opportunity to welcome you aboard... More

They run a good ship. They were on time, organized and have parking nearby for $15. Best of all they were the cheapest. We drove a little further which meant less time on the ferry. This was good for us because we had been concerned about getting seasick which turned out not to be an issue.

This is the best way to visit the island and it costs 20 dollars. It is worth your money. Hint: park at the near mall it is free and only a 10 mins walk.

No complaints. The ferry was easy to get to, departed on time, and had plenty of seats. Haven't been on the other ferry for 25 years so I can't really compare them, but we were satisfied with the service.

Went to Martha's Vinyard - on this boat and the ride was great- lovely day and the water was calm. Boat was in great shape and the people working on it were very nice and helpful. Would recommend it.

No covered area with shadow in Oak bluffs. Have to wait in sun. Nice trip at all. Parking free could be a must.

The driving instructions on the website are excellent, and there are two parking lots a short walk from the ferry terminal, at a cost of $15 per day.. In the summer get there an hour ahead of time as the lots fill up, and you can get to the front of the line if you want to sit anyway in... More
