We took the trip from Hyannis to Nantucket to Martha's Vineyard back to Hyannis. The boat were clean and the cafe was well stocked. The downside was the boat back to Hyannis was late and by the time we set off the weather has become rough and we had a very choppy crossing. I thought the price was expensive too... More

The ferry staff were friendly and the ride was great. Parking was right there at the pier. Picking up tickets I order the night before online was a breeze the ticket counter employees were very nice.

Our family of 4 was scheduled to take the Hy-Line ferry from Hyannis to Martha's Vineyard on June 19th. We had booked this months in advance and were packed and ready to leave on June 18th to head to the Cape Cod area. The day before in the late afternoon I receive an "Alert email." At first I thought it... More

Unfortunately, the ferry was closed for Martha's Vineyard, which was a real shame. My family did enjoy the trip to Nantucket. The boat was comfortable, where there was a bathroom on the boat and they also sold refreshments. It's open seating, so you can sit on top or in full shelter on the bottom (which is good if it's cold... More

Going to Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard from Hyannis - this is the ride for you. Fast, reasonably priced, comfortable, and a friendly crew. There is a snack bar for cocktails and snacks on your 1 hour cruise. Sit inside the boat in air conditioned comfort in roomy seats or venture out on the stern to enjoy fresh salty air as... More

Staying in West Yarmouth, my friend and I took a day trip on the nearby Hy-Line ferry to Martha's Vineyard. Coupled with a bus tour once on the island, this was a wonderful day, worth every penny! We maximized the day by going on the first ferry in the morning and returning at the end of the day on the... More

We took the ferry from Hyannis to Martha's Vineyard to Nantucket and back to Hyannis. Great day trip. Would have loved to have a little more time on MV. However all ferries were on time and boarding was handled efficiently by the crews. Great trip. Sunset from ferry on way home was awesome.

We took the ferry to Nantucket last Friday for a day trip. It is nice that on Fridays, the ferry returns later (10pm). The ride was very smooth, the interior was nice. Almost like Amtrak train seats, cushiony, comfortable. They even have round seating on the first level with a snack bar so your group can sit and talk with... More

My family and I took the Hyline 9:35 boat to Nantucket from Hyannis on Friday June 17th. We were running extremely late and were panicking because we had a massive amount of luggage that we had to get on the boat and this was the first time we had ever taken the ferry to Nantucket. When we pulled up to... More

Day Trip to Nantucket ... They were on time both ways and had a friendly staff. The ride was smooth and quick. You may want to bring your own snacks if you can't wait an hour. The drinks are good. Many seat options on the Grey Lady. I recommend about five hours stay to shop, eat, and take in a... More
