“Smooth Nice Ride”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Had a great ferry ride with eight family members from Falmouth to Oak Bluffs, Martha's Vineyard. It is much shorter ride then from Hyannis, about 30 minutes and a reasonable price round trip. Caught a taxi ride for 8 from Bluffs to Edgartown for $35. Had an enjoyable walk, a little bite to eat, a bit of shopping in Edgertown and came back.

“Average”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

It's your average ferry from Falmouth to Oak Bluffs. $20 round trip unless your hotel offers a better deal with hourly trips from 6AM-6PM and an extra one on Sunday. It's a calm 35 minute trip, nothing special.

“Great way to go to MV!”
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.
