“Great way to go to MV!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Just be sure to give yourself plenty of time to get lost trying to find the departure point in Falmouth. There are no signs, and it turns out there are two ferry systems. Island Queen has its' own parking lot for $15/day. Then walk 200 yds. down residential area to embarkation.
We enjoyed our daytrip with lunch at "Among Flowers" for lunch.

“Reasonable, Quick On, Quick Off”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Best way to get to Martha's Vineyard without a vehicle. Very reasonable rates ($12 p/p, if memory serves correct), spot-on scheduling, quick and orderly entry and egress.

After seeing the monstrous ferries tending Woods Hole-Vineyard service, we were extremely glad we chose this personal and enjoyable ferry ride.

Thanks Trip Advisor posters for the heads-up on the Island Queen!
