4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2011

Parking is expensive. Try to walk or catch a ride from the hotel.

“Fast, efficient and on time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2011

The ferry was on time and there were lots of comfortable seats.
We took the bus tour of Martha's Vineyard - you can buy tickets on the ferry and the
bus is waiting when you arrive.
Despite the fog and drizzle, it was a pleasant ferry ride and bus tour.

“The only way to get to the Vineyard”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2011

We've taken the Steamship Authority for years and just got clued into the Island Queen running to OB out of Falmouth. It was a thousand times easier than dealing with the shuttle from the parking lots to the boat. The boat seemed faster even and had a ton of room. Loading and unloading passengers was a snap since there are no cars. Our dogs were welcome and the staff was super helpful, friendly, and great.

If you aren't taking your car over (and why would you!?), the Island Queen is the one to beat.

“Fast and to the Point”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

Cheaper than the other ferry, and quite fast trip to Oak Bluffs. Bring a jacket, it gets cool. It's clean, but no frills; however, if you like hot dogs and cape cod chips than you are good to go.
