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.

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
