We stayed at Cape Cod Harbor hotel so we had free parking and a discount for the ferry. We really enjoyed the ferry - We sat outside on the at first but went inside to get away from the wind and waves (very wet). We loved our day on Nantucket - we rented bikes from Young's and a went on... More

I dont Know if it was just me or Not but I thought Nantucket sucked. This ferry was way overpriced. $75 for Round trip that took 1 hour. Plus the parking lot to leave your car was $25. It was so cold inside the ferry I had to ask my husband to buy me a sweater on the way back.... More

Took the high speed ferry and had only a 50 minute ride to Martha's Vineyard. We visited on June 20 and it was the last day of the "spring" season so we paid the regular fare but got a $25 gift certificate for each person to a restaurant on Martha's Vineyard. It was in the low 70s on the day... More

Originally we planned to do "around the sound" and visit both Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. After determining that we would end up on ferries for 5 hours, we opted for the high speed ferry to Martha's Vineyard, and back. Parking near the ferry was very easy. And since we were gone less than 6 hours, we were able to use... More

We got the traditional ferry from Hyannis to Oaks Bluff. Traditional means "very slow" but it was a beautiful day, we are tourists and we really enjoyed the 1hr 40min journey. I would not want to do this on a rough day on the seas though. We got the high speed (55min) return. Both ferries have plenty of indoor and... More

For a trip to Nantucket I prefer to take the Grey Lady, the slow ferry from Hyannis, MA. Opt for the First Class Service and you get a nice private area with comfortable couches, tables and chairs and a special deck area. For the trip over they serve coffee with danish and muffins (not home made but save your appetite... More

I have taken this ferry several times over the last few years and it's always a smooth ride. This time we got a great spring deal for the same regular price of $72 per person that included a $25 certificate per person to be used at a restaurant on Martha's Vineyard. We chose MV chowder company and really enjoyed it!

We only had time for a day trip over to Martha's Vineyard, so we decided to take the High Speed Ferry from Hyannisport and added on a bus tour of the island. To lower the cost, we took the regular ferry for the return trip. The ferry ride over on the Lady Martha was smooth and enjoyable. We sat in... More

On September 4th we took the Eagle Ferry to Nantucket. This 2 hr and 15 minute trip was so pleasant and much nicer than I thought it would be. The fare was $35 round trip for each of us. The weather was absolutely beautiful and it was the day of our 49th wedding anniversary. It was the first day of... More

I took the traditional Hy-line to the Martha's Vineyard. But, took the high speed ship back to the dock. This was a great ride back. I wish I had taken the high speed ship to the Island. The ship has both in door and out door seating. I sat out on the upper deck. It was wonderful. I was able... More
