First, let me say that the slow ferry out to Nantucket really was fine, don't get me wrong. However, given the choice between Hy-Line and Steamship, I honestly would rather go Steamship. We found the boat to be in need of updating. I'm not a big boat person and in fact don't particularly like to be on them but hey,... More

Took the traditional ferry rather than the high-speed and parked in the "official" lot. The parking person took our key and parked the car which was right where he said it would be - with the window wide open and the key in the ignition. We saw no signs of security but I assume there is some sort of protection... More

We enjoyed our trip out to Nantucket from Hyannis. It took one hour on the high speed ferry. The ferry is clean and there are seats both inside and outside. They sell snacks onboard too. In addition there is a restroom. The staff were helpful too.

Hy-Line provides ferry service to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. They have a high-speed and regular ferry. We had planned on this for the next day. We parked in an area presumed to be free parking, but paid $17. When raced to the ticket area, we learned it was too late to go to Martha's Vineyard so we had to settle... More

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
