Only way to get to Cuttyhunk if you do not own your own boat!

Wonderful ferry from New Bedford, MA to Cuttyhunk Island. The crew was friendly, the chowder was good and the ride smooth.

The round trip ticket price from Falmouth to Martha's Vineyard was $20. It was a very enjoyable ride.

Nice sized boat for the trip from New Bedford to Cuttyhunk Island. Exceptional captain and crew, all supervised by the Mrs. Sit inside or outside. This is worth the visit.

Trip was full of fun. Everyone dives of Cuttyhunk dock when ship leaves. I even did it too! Staff very helpful even with little ones. If you can't relax here you can't relax!

The captain is a pro. You can get on this ferry with complete confidence. Friendly staff as well. Small ferry, but all the amenities of a larger ferry, however you will feel like family.

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.

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

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
