Not having particularly good "sea legs" I was a tad apprehensive about going on a ferry over to Martha's Vineyard until I saw the Island Queen Ferry! It's a good-sized boat and gets you from Falmouth to Oak Bluffs in no time at all. Everything was really well organised with parking a couple of blocks away (remember to allow time... More

When you get to your hotel, you'll find all kinds of brochures on ferries to Martha's Vineyard, and the small yellow brochure from the Island Queen might get overlooked but it's the simplest and easiest way to get to Martha's Vineyard. The other brochures were confusing about where you park (many have several different lots) and different prices. The Island... More

Very nice 45 minute ride to Martha's Vineyard. Food, drink and bathroom facilities are available on the ferry; You can sit outside and enjoy the fresh air, or sit inside.

We travelled on the Island Queen Ferry in August and had a great time. Very informal and punctual. Great trip for children.

Falmouth has 3 ferries, but I prefer the Island Queen to the others. The boat is a very manageable size, it goes right to Oak Bluffs from Falmouth Harbor. Bring your bike (additional charge like on the other ferries).
