Beautiful trip visiting both Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. Very reasonable for ferry trips to and from both islands and back to Hyannis! Killer Bloody Mary's on-board. We wanted to take a tour of Martha's Vineyard, but found out all tours ended before our 4:30 pm arrival to the Vineyard. If you want to take tour, suggest making the Vineyard your... More

We made our reservations online and printed our tickets. Very friendly staff. Clean boat. Traveled to Martha's Vineyard and took the last ferry back. E-Z to find, board and just relax.

We took the fast ferry to Nantucket one day and another to Martha's Vineyard another day during our stay on Cape Cod. They are a bit more expensive that the traditional ferry but ran on time, were quick, clean and efficient at getting passengers on and off. They were also in Hyannis where we were staying so handy but the... More

Hy-Line does a great job between Hyannis and Nantucket. The high speed boats are comfortable and get you there quickly. Reserve early as the high speed boats sell out.

We left Hyannis and within 55 minutes we were at Martha's Vineyard. The ride was smooth and quick. A bit expensive but you are paying for convenience- $72 RT.

Marvelous trip by the High Speed Ferry. We sat inside, barely felt movement but could see how fast we were going. We arrived in about an hour on Martha's Vineyard. The regular ferry takes an extra 50 minutes. We decided it was better to spend that time on land, looking around the island. Absolutely worth the extra cost.

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
