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. :))

While visiting Cape Cod, our friends (who live in Brewster) suggested we take this boat to Nantucket vs. the one from Hyannis. I'm really glad we did!!! First of all, this one has free parking, and there is plenty of parking spots. Second, the boat is not overcrowded. We did not have to wait in line to board at all!... More

Freedom cruise line is a great way to get to Nantucket. The boat leaves from the smaller port of Harwich. Parking is free. The crew is friendly. Can't beat it. For passenger convenience there is a small restroom onboard and snacks available for purchase. The passage takes a bit over an hour. You can sit outside on nice days or... More

Freedom cruise facilities were comfortable offering airplane like seating in an interior cabin as well as deck seating. Parking was free and the cost of the cruise was an affordable option for a mid range travel time. I would recommend making reservations in advance. The boat is large and has a small snack bar where refreshments may be purchased.

We rode the Freedom Ferry from Harwich Port to Nantucket (80 minute sail). One of my guest uses a wheel chair and the crew were excellent, respectful and lots of fun. The crew assured our safe boarding and passage to Nantucket. The seas were high, and the crew continually monitored all passengers and assisted any in need. We opted for... More

Required to be on boat no later than twenty minutes before departure. No air conditioning, no fans, no water and no bathroom while waiting. Intolerably hot.
