I used the ferry service to Martha's Vineyard from Hyannis and booked in person at the ticket office. I later found out from fellow travellers that they were operating a special offer, which included a lunch voucher for a restaurant in Martha's Vineyard. My friends had booked on the same day as I had and when I enquired I was... More

It's more expensive than the others but if your in the Dennis area it's much closer and worth the money. The normal rate is $72 round trip, but the fall special is $72 and includes $25 per person towards dinner and so other discounts..aaaahhh yes please. Fast, comfortable, clean and well worth it.

We enjoyed our ferry ride out to Martha's Vineyard. The boat was clean and quiet and the trip took less than an hour. Arrivals and departures were painless and expedient. Food and drinks were available, but we didn't use that service. If you are visiting "The Vineyard" for the day or longer, this is the way to go...unless you are... More

Well worth the extra bucks to get you there fast. You can either sit inside or out. We were able to get the "Fall Special" which included two $25 gift certificates for 2 restaurants. We used the coupon for Coop de ville restaurant (it was their $14.99 Lobster Fest Day - Tuesday ). We both got the lobster & corn... More

This fast ferry was a SWEET ride! Smooth sailing all the way. Slow out of the harbor to take pics or to film. Same thing coming into Martha's Vineyard. Staff was very nice and access to get tickets in the morning was easy but I do seriously recommend purchasing your tickets when you plan your trip. Some leaving times not... More

Hyline Cruises takes you door to door from Hyannis to either Nantucket or Martha's Vinyard. I recommend taking the High Speed ferry rather than the Traditional Ferry. Yes, it costs more, but it gets there twice as fast as. Features both an enclosed cabin and outside seating. Watch your time as the boats leave on schedule.

While at first we thought the price was a bit steep, spending an hour vs. 2 1/2 hours getting to Nantucket was well worth the cost. You can sit inside in A/C and watch TV or sit outside and take in the beautiful views. There was a bar on board as well. They were offering a fall special so we... More

The fast ferry is the way to go to Nantucket if you are not bringing a car. There's plenty of seating. We sat outside and enjoyed the fresh air and views.
