I purchased a Living Social deal for the Hy-Line Traditional to Martha's Vineyard. Boy was that a mistake! Unfortunately, the weather was not great the day we visited the island and the waters were choppy. The boat was rocking so much that the crew finally got out the 'barf bags' just in case any passengers had issues. This part of... More

I have taken the traditional ferries many years ago and now with the Hi-speed, you barely know you are on a boat if you sit inside! We sat outside on the way to Martha's Vineyard and it was great! If you can afford it, I recommend the Hi-speed Ferry :)

The boat ride is about one hour. They gave us a photo of the shore with the Kennedy houses identified. This way we knew hat we were looking at. The guide gave a talk and answered our questions. We also saw Hyannis Harbor, some notable boats, and other fancy and famous houses. The Kennedy Compound is the #1 attraction in... More

want to get out on the water and hear a little of the history of cape cod? this is the way to do it. One nice touch, after the overview and before we turned back to shore, the crew comes out and walks around asking if you have any further questions. fun and informative.

Took this cruise around the Hyannisport harbor. Advertises seeing the Kennedy compound, but you really can't get close enough by boat to really appreciate the homes. The tour guide on board used a monotone delivery and did not add anything to the tour. It was nice to get out on the water and see all the beautiful boats....but don't go... More

If you think you'll see the Kennedy compound, think again! It was so far away - the boat doesn't go near the shore at all! Bring binoculars! The ferry was ok, had bathroom and snack bar down below. Audio system was down, so we didn't have narration of sites (but they were far away anyway!

From the first email from the UK to the helpful Betsy to prompt arrival on Martha's Vineyard this company impressed us with it's friendly professionalism. The day before we sailed realised we had booked the wrong tickets and went to the office at 7pm -both the gentleman on the gate and the lady in the office calmed us down with... More

The ship is a little old, but clean and pleasant. The crew is great, the price is good, the schedule is reliable ... and trip on a sunny day is absolutely marvelous. Wonderful scenery.

Although the trip itself was good.Nice ships and very efficient. I went on the day trip because I could see some of Nantucket and the Vineyard in one day. The concept sounded good but trying to see both in one day was too short of a time. The islands are pretty big and Nantucket had the better harbor area. If... More

Wonderful service from start to finish. They took my reservation over the phone with a smile, helped me park right next to the dock for a low price, and assisted my kids with all of their needs. Once we left the dock my whole family was provided tackle, instructions and a demonstration. We traveled about 45 minutes out of Hyannis... More
