Fast, on time and clean. Great way to spend the day at MV and come back at your leisure. 1st ferry of the day boarded immediately, no waiting in the coral.. And took off on time. Return ferry was no problem either and did not seem overcrowded for a Mid summer day in July.

Gets you to Martha's Vinyard and back. Nice ride. Quick. Major problem, and I mean major, is at MV, you and 500 more people stand in a paved area, sun beating down on you, or rain or whatever, without any shelter! Doesn't matter if your 70 or have a baby or anything! And you are supposed to get there at... More

I mean what's not to like about a day on The Vineyard. The boat was nice, and it took only 1/2 hour each way. The price was great. Will definitely use this ferry again.

This was an easy 30 minute ride to Martha's Vineyard. The Ferry was fine, but the lady at the ticket window was not very helpful with information. This was our first time to Martha's Vineyard or even the Cape, so we had questions as to where they were located. Her only answer was, "At the dock." She was not able... More

Quick walk from our Motel in Falmouth. Great ferry ride to Martha's Vineyard. There was a LTE ferry back on the Sunday at 8:15pm which was perfect.

Easy and fast way to make a day trip to Martha's Vineyard. Wonderful, helpful staff and crew. No cars, passengers only. Plenty of room for your bikes. Leaves along the east side of Falmouth Harbor and arrives in Oak Bluffs on the Vineyard.

The boat is a quick and reasonable way to get to Oak Bluffs for the day. There is enclosed seating, protected seating and open to the air seating so you can choose how much weather you want. It can get bumpy if the seas are rough but so can most boats. The employees were all very friendly and willing to... More

For just a few dollars more, you can make the trip to Martha's Vineyard on a smaller ferry with less crowds, and less hassles. Parking is only a few hundred feet from the Ferry. Get to the peer early during peak times (early morning on the weekends), tickets cannot be pre-purchased and seating is limited. Courteous & friendly staff. Cash... More
