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

Comfortable, fast, scenic ferry to Martha's Vineyard. This is THE to go. Just as I got settled in to nap, voila! We arrived to Oak Bluffs on MV. Can't say enough great things about this high quality service. HyLine = Hy Living.

We took the traditional (non-high-speed) ferry departing from Hyannis to Nantucket in the morning (and then again returning the evening) so that we could do a day trip to Nantucket Island. We had bought 2 first-class tickets at a steep discount from a Groupon deal. The discounted price made it seem worth the cost, but otherwise the traditional ferry takes... More

We took the high-speed cruise to Nantucket. It was a very pleasant experience! The staff was very professional. We bought a combination package ticket, which included dinner at Arno’s; Arno’s was just OK, so if we were to do it again, we would not do the combination ticket.

A very good way to get to Nantucket. Good food, convenient and clean restrooms. Great view. It does get a little wet if you sit outside in the back.

The motel we stayed at booked our departure times for the MV fast ferry at a discounted ticket price. The ferry left the Hyannis dock on time and arrived at Martha's Vineyard about 50 minutes later. Our ride across was smooth and the ferry was not at all crowded when we went in late September. We sat inside on the... More

On time service. Got to Nantucket in an hour. Good snack bar. Comfortable seating on ferry. Can park car with them for $17 per day. I came back on the last ferry & thought the parking lot (#5) was locked but the exit was not the same as the entrance which was locked. Look for the exit opposite the entrance.

We used Hy Line cruise for our trip to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket Island in May 2013. Both days was smooth rides. One day we took the slow ferry and the next day we took the high speed. The trip was so much fun and one of the guys on the ferry pointed out things to us along the way.... More

Rather than almost 4 hours on the slower ferry, we opted for the high speed. There before we knew it, more time for us to spend on the island
