The Island Queen ferry is conveniently located right in town and is reasonably priced for trips to Martha's Vineyard. Pedestrians only, so loading and unloading times were quick. Nicely maintained boat with both inside and outside seating. Parking lot charge is high ($15) so walking...More

We rode a noon ride out and visited Martha’s Vineyard then rode the 5:15 back. Smooth rides both times, and the ship and rest rooms were clean both ways. Courteous staff and good rates. We would recommend the island queen to anyone.
