Good quick service to Nantucket

Little pricey but this time of year it was better to pay more than for it to take 2 1/2 hours to get to Nantucket.

We bought round trip first class tickets on the traditional ferry from Hyannis to Nantucket & back. We showed up at 4:00 for the 4:10 ferry. There was a long line of people & we assumed they were standing in line to board the ferry. There were a group of people standing in front of the first class boarding sign... More

What a great service from Hyannis to Nantucket, especially for a day trip to the island. I waited until morning to buy a ticket and was lucky enough to get one, but when I arrived 30 minutes before the trip was sold out as was the next one. I was put on the standby list and was thankful to have... More

I have consistently had excellent customer service from the staff on the boat and in the office at Hy-Line. No complaints.

We are a family of five with 3 boys and took the shower traditional ferry (half price and twice long of the high speed option offered by the same company) from Hyannis to Martha Vineyard in mid June. The ferry ride was one hour and 40 minute and quite wavy. What made this trip really memorable was the super nice... More

Don't let the price of the High Speed Ferry scare you off. It is worth it. Only a 55 minute trip to Martha's Vineyard and the seating is very comfortable. On the day we traveled they had a special which included a $25.00 voucher (per ticket purchased) for food at a couple of restaurants in Oak Bluffs.

We had a great time on this boat tour. Rachel was our tour guide and she was fantastic! It was a nice way to see everything from the water. My only complaint is the tour was an hour long, but it felt so much shorter! I couldn't believe how quickly the time went! I highly recommend for everyone to go.

Went out on the slow boat and back on the fast. Great day out. Both boats were fine - good facilities and plenty of space to sit outside to get the views. So easy to book on line unlike their competitor the Steamship Authority.

The ferry was very clean and well organized from ticket sales to the staff that was assisting with boarding. The mimosa we had was priced reasonably and was delicious! We took the fast ferry that was spacious and we were in Nantucket in an hour.

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
