The ferry is always clean. The attendants are always pleasant. There's a bar and snacks. The schedule is adhered to. It's the best price from Falmouth. They've been doing this a long time.

Quick, friendly, inexpensive summertime service to Oak Bluffs Martha’s Vineyard. Sails directly from beautiful Falmouth harbor.

This is a nice family run service. The staff are very friendly and helpful. There is no confusion as with some of the big ship venues. An important thing to know, they don't take credit cards. Other than that, this is the easiest way to get to the Vineyard.

We stayed right down the street at the Motor Lodge. It was great, didn't have to deal with parking and got right on the boat. The ferry folks were helpful making suggestions and we ended up riding the bike path.

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
