We had a great experience with Freedom Cruise Line on a round trip from Harwichport to Nantucket. The staff was professional and responsive to our questions. They were extremely courteous and concerned for our safety. The ferry departed and arrived on time on each leg of our journey. We did have a beautiful day with calm seas, which I am... More

Great option if you're staying in the Brewster area or anywhere further out on the Cape. We were considering the Hyannis route, but after seeing the big line to get on their ferry, we were so glad we chose Freedom. Smaller crowd, great seats and cheap snacks and drinks on board. If you come back on the 7:30 cruise to... More

We took the Freedom cruise line ferry to Nantucket for the day. The ride was smooth and enjoyable. The return trip in the evening was wonderful with one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen. We took our small dogs with us so we had to sit outside on both trips. This turned out to be a bonus,... More

We bought a groupon (first time) and called freedom cruise line on Sunday for use on Monday (within 24 hours). They said no problem and confirmed our reservation. We arrived at 7:30am for the 8:00 am departure. There was no line ! The woman helping me warned me of rough seas and offered to changed my reservation no charge. I... More

My family and I went to Nantucket today on the Freedom cruise line. We had purchased a groupon for a great price. The trip over went well although I stayed below. On the trip back this evening I was up on the upper deck. The seas were a little rough and I was amazed that the boat captain was engaged... More

My wife and I took the Freedom Cruise Line from Harwich to Nantucket in early July. We made our reservations the day before our trip so we had to pay at the time of the reservation. If you reserve in advance you can cancel at no charge up to 24 hours before the trip. The morning of our trip my... More

The hi-speed boat leaves from Harwich Port and gets you to Nantucket in 80 min. The day we went the ride was smooth and the seats (which are actually airline seats) were fine. It seems expensive at $75/person round trip, but we felt it was worth it. We arrived on Nantucket at 10:30AM and had until 3:50PM, so we ate... More

A last minute reservaion on a gorgeous September day and we were on our way to Nantucket. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. Outside seating could be more comfortable, but a must if you are prone to motion sickness and need to feel the wind in your face while you gaze at the horizon. The staff advised the "dry... More

What a great way to go to Nantucket. The departure from Harwich is the best. It makes it all so easy even for those last minute adventures. I'll definitely use them again. What a great time. :))
