We so enjoyed our day trip to Cuttyhunk Island, thanks to a wonderful ferry ride with CuttyHunk Ferry Company. Tickets were reasonable: for two adults, with parking, our total came to $100.00. We got to enjoy an hour-long cruise out and another hour back. On the way, we took advantage of the inexpensive beverage service: cold beers made the trip... More

The ferry leaves New Bedford for the island. The boat stays at the pier while you visit the island. The return with all the children waiving us off was fun. If you like to walk and explore it is a marvelous time. We enjoyed ourselves very much. We found a shop selling sandwiches. I have to say this is a... More

Looking for a terrific little adventure? Head out to Cuttyhunk Island for the day or overnight. The nice, clean and very friendly little ferry service will take you there in one very pleasant hour. Explore the quaint undeveloped Island with its beautiful but rocky beaches ( all walkable) then wander thru the few little streets to meet the locals and... More

The crew is very friendly, and the captain has a good sense of humor. There is plenty of seating on top, on the sides, and indoors for inclement weather. There is a fancy coffee machine which offers lattes, cappuccino and expressos which the crew will make for you. There are hot dogs, cookies, and a soup offering on a daily... More

Magical place, well worth the ferry ride. Bring lunch and sturdy shoes. Bikes are useless, despite other reviews. There are but 1.6 miles of paved roads on the island.

This island getaway is exclusive and commercially undeveloped, so it's not for everyone, but this fast ferry and its helpful crew sure makes a unique afternoon on the water, and after a brisk walk to the island's highest point for the view, a visit to the exhibits @ the Cuttyhunk Historical Society, and an ice cream cone, you're whisked back...

Park at the pier ($10), buy your roundtrip ticket ($45) and get ready to spend a delightful day in a genteel setting off the coast of Massachusetts. Only one carry-on per person; other items you take have a small fee and are placed in a holding area for the trip across the bay. Dog on leash is free! The trip... More

I have been traveling to Cutty since before I could walk. My family (to this day) travels to the island pretty much every weekend in the summer. There really isn't much on the island, and things have changed a lot over the years, but it still maintains it beauty and solitude. I was married on the island back in 2010... More

Here's something different: take the ferry from New Bedford to the sparsely populated Cuttyhunk Island. The boat is captained and crewed by a veteran sea captain, who makes the trip year round. Ride takes about one hour to cover the 9+ miles. The island features lots of walking trails, some paved, some dirt. In season, you can stop at the... More
