Efficient travel to Vineyard or Nantucket. Pricing is competitive at $59 per person. If you are only spending the day the high speed ferry gives you extra time to explore either island...it worth the extra money.

Took a cruise to Martha's Vineyard. It was a smoothe trip and the Bloody Mary (or two) were very good as well. Will definitely book with them upon return.

Booked our tickets on line ahead (recommended). All is very organized when you arrive. Printed out our boarding passes, got in line, scanned the boarding pass and boarded. Sitting on the top deck in the sun is best. Bar kept us hydrated. Lower decks have comfortable tables with chairs and A/C. The hour ride passes quickly. Well worth th $77.00... More

Fast, cozy, comfortable seating. Plenty of room. What a view of the harbor. We used it to go from Hyannis to Nantucket to Martha's Vineyard. Love it

The newer high speed boats to Nantucket are a real bonus. We used to take the old ferries, but they took over 2 hours and had fewer trips to chose from per day. The high speed boats are smooth and take only an hour, leaving much more time on the island for day-trippers. We took the 9:30 over and the... More

If you want to spend a day in Martha's Vineyard this is the way to get there. The service is quick and comfortable. Perhaps not the fault of the ferry company but the queuing system wasn't exactly clear at the Oak Bluffs end so we ended up at the back of the queue despite being in another queue for some... More

Not too much to say really, just a quick and easy way to get to Nantucket from Hyannis port. Does exactly what is says in the tin. Takes one hour from port to port. Food and beverages reasonably priced on board too.

I have used Hy-Line for occasional trips over to Nantucket for over 30 years. I've never been disappointed with the service.

We decided that a visit to Nantucket Island was feasible, so we boarded the Hy-Line, High-Speed Ferry boat from Hyannis to the island. While leaving the protected harbor the stable catamaran was only allowed to cruise in the no-wake zone. But, after the last buoy was passed, the huge diesel powerplants roared to life and the wake caused by the... More
