We travelled to Martha's Vineyard on Saturday morning boarding at the Hyannis port. Very poor organization and instructions on travel. We arrived early and no one was available to give us instructions as to the line up procedure. Some of the guests were very confused as to the procedures with small signs placed on poles. Eventually we boarded the vessel... More

This was my first visit to Nantucket and I loved it. The trip over was amazing. The fact that they have a full service bar right on the boat made it fun. Service was great!

We usually book using Hy-Line when we go to Nantucket and they've always been good. My only complaint is how long they make you wait to board when everyone else is off and you're baking in the sun waiting in line. It's quick, one hour, and you're there. Staff that scans your tickets are nice and I've never had a... More

We boarded the Princess at Hyannis Port for the Harbor Cruise, which was only an hour long. The ferry was comfortable, and the tour guide provided lots of information along the way. I took the cruise for the simple reason of seeing the Kennedy compound, which was the highlight. However, the ship barely got close enough to spot the three... More

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
