Crew and ground personnel very friendly and accommodating. They even switched us to an earlier boat on way back. Boat is clean. There are bathrooms. Trip takes one hour from Hyannis to Martha’s Vineyard/ oaks bluff.

From pre-purchasing tickets, asking questions the day before departure, and ease of embarking, this process couldn't have been any smoother. The ride to Martha's Vineyard was 1 hour. Seating is comfortable and the staff on board was very accommodating and helpful. Mike, who was on...More

Prior to yesterday, I had only ever taken the lumbering ferry to Nantucket. It took well over two hours each way, and was a bit austere in its comforts. Yesterday was the first time that I had the chance to take the high-speed ferry. Wow!...More

While I prefer to fly to Nantucket, sometimes I drive to Hyannis and take ferry. The High Speed service makes it somewhat more pleasurable. Nice snack bar. Good crew. Clean ship reasonable priced.

Took the high speed ferry (about an hour trip) from Hyannis to Martha's vineyard. Boat was very nice and right on time. Crew was helpful. A bit expensive from Hyannis, but can leave from Wood Hull for lower cost.
