Cuttyhunk is a special island that hasn't become overrun by tourists and ruined by development. A beautiful place where you can simply enjoy the peace and quiet. Take a... More

great trip, crew very attentive, ship was clean, and the waters were not too choppy. Cuttyhunk was quite pastoral, the docking procedure was fun to watch.

I took the CuttyHunk Ferry Co.'s winter seal cruise. Bundle up because its cold out on the water of Buzzards Bay in March but oh what a lovely trip. We had amazing views of harbor and gray seals as well and numerous water birds that winter over in the area. Then we were given ample time to wander parts of... More

Nice sized boat for the trip from New Bedford to Cuttyhunk Island. Exceptional captain and crew, all supervised by the Mrs. Sit inside or outside. This is worth the visit.

Trip was full of fun. Everyone dives of Cuttyhunk dock when ship leaves. I even did it too! Staff very helpful even with little ones. If you can't relax here you can't relax!

The captain is a pro. You can get on this ferry with complete confidence. Friendly staff as well. Small ferry, but all the amenities of a larger ferry, however you will feel like family.

We got to enjoy an hour-long cruise out and another hour back. On the way, we took advantage of the inexpensive beverage service: cold beers made the trip... More
