Hi, My family is planning on spending a day in Nantucket this July. I would love to see the whole island, as it sounds like you did. Is it best for us to bring our own vehicle over on the ferry? Thanks.
No to take your own car you take a traditional ferry which is almost three hours each way instead of a hour in the high speed ferry. Thus take a high speed ferry. You can rent at affordable rental a short walk from ferry. It is expensive but for a day worth while. Rent a four wheel drive so you can take a great drive on beach. You will need reservations.
