My wife and I took the the high speed ferry service from Hyannis Port to Martha's Vineyard, which takes about an hour. This was a really good service, although not the cheapest at $59 per person for the return trip. Refreshments can be purchased on board for both the outbound and inbound journey.

We took the Hy Line to MV and it was our first trip on this ferry and to MV. It is a fast and smooth ride - the cabin is comfortable and clean, the crew is friendly. We enjoyed the trip and would only recommend coming early for departure. The 30 minutes they suggest for queuing on line is really... More

Rode the fast ferry to Nantucket. What a smooth ride. Just glided over the water and arrived before you knew it. Both directions were great. Saved so much time compared- to the traditional ferry. The new Gray Lady 4 was GREAT.3

The high speed ferry is very good and very efficient. No problems. People nice, easy trip. Luggage handled very efficiently with no problems encountered. We think this ferry is certainly more reliable than the airlines with the unpredictable weather on Nantucket. Connections are easily made to bus to Logan Airport.

As novices to the Cape Cod ferry systems, we were slightly anxious about this trip; especially as all the previous day's ferries had been cancelled because of the after effects of a Tropical Storm ( Hermine). We needn't have worried. From the initial phone call to check the ferry from Hyannis to Nantucket was running, to the on-line booking to... More

We used the fast ferry to get to Nantucket. We also came back to meet friends on the Cape and went back on the same day. All of the trips were very nice. Seas were calm. I had made our outbound reservations for the wrong day. They said come in before the boat leaves and get new tickets. We did... More

We had gone over to Martha's vineyard from hyannis. It was an hour and a half on the water. The seas weren't too bad. You can barely feel them when the seas were a little choppy. The beer prices could be a tad cheaper as they were $7.00 for 1 beer and it was only 12 ounces. The price for... More

I deducted because they didn't have parking for us. The bathrooms were clean, seating was clean and comfortable. They did depart behind schedule, boarding from the island was not as organized. We paid $75/person for return tickets with bike.

Nice view of the ocean as you boat out the jetty and Kennedy compound. 2 separate cruises. One to Nantucket and one a tour of the area. Years back I would always like seeing Ted Kennedy's boat the Maya. I like the ferry ride because it's a nice boat ride and bang for the buck.
