Realizing the limited time I had left to spend with Mom after her diagnosis of stage 4 cancer I had to make a plan to get her to MV very soon. However, the logistics were significantly more challenging as Mom is now restricted to a wheel chair. I called my good friend on MV looking for suggestions as to where... More

We stayed at a hotel just two blocks from the dock where we caught the ferry to Martha's Vineyard. The trip out and back on the ferry was wonderful, and all of the scenery was unforgettable. The town of Falmouth was such a treat with lots of shops and restaurants, and we were there about 8:00 in the evening. This... More

You can't go wrong with this ferry service! It can be crowded at peak season-- plan on arriving as early as possible! Parking within walking distance, and a Starbucks down the street. Can be rough on windy days or days with inclement weather--you may get a bit nauseous . If this is a problem for you, consider the bigger ,... More

This is a great ferry that takes you right to Oaks Bluff. You'll want to come and take an early ferry as parking can be limited. There are two places to park for $15-$20 per day. Island Queen is fast, efficient, and if it books up early they leave early!

We have taken this ferry many times and it never disappoints. Always on time, clean, and staff is very friendly. Cash only. Really do love the scenery on the way through the marina and you are to the vineyard within 30 minutes. Just great!

This is a nice way to go over to Martha's Vineyard.. The Boat is clean, quick and easy to get to.. The views along the way are great.. It is about a 45 minute ride on the ferry.

I tend to take the Island Queen over the Steamship authority when heading to the vineyard. It may not have as many sailings, but the staff is wonderful, and the parking situation much easier than the lots and bussing system that you have to deal with going out of woods hole.

The ferry was fast and on schedule and reasonably priced. It was $20.00 round trip for an adult. The parking lot was $15.00. The ride to Oaks Bluff was about 30 minutes. The ship was clean and the staff was friendly. We went on a Wednesday and the 9:00am ferry was crowded so I could image on the weekend the... More
