Use this ferry at least once a year to visit Nantucket from Harwichport. Service is smooth and reliable - from booking through boarding through disembarking. Recommend a topside seat for great views during the journey. Three thumbs up.

If you are staying in Chatham or Harwich or other close-by communities this is a great option. It was very easy to make on-line reservations. The only draw-back for some (it wasn't for us) is that there was only one time to leave and one time to return. If you want to spend a longer day, have the opportunity for... More

We traveled to Nantucket aboard the Freedom Cruise Line. An outstanding alternative to the crowded and overpriced HyLine. Our mom needed a wheelchair to get around. The crew bent over backwards to board her first, assure she was comfortable and safe, stow her chair and repeatedly checked in on her during the trip. Port and ship was clean and comfy.... More

My husband and I decided at the last minute to go to Nantucket and Freedom Cruise Line as able to accommodate. They are close to where we were staying in Chatham and parking was free. The ride there and back was not cheep, but got us there quicker than other cruise lines so we were able to explore Nantucket longer.... More

Wonderful people, free parking and easy trip to boat from Yarmouth. Cruise was on beautiful warm day. Deck seating outside was great with views of Nantucket Sound, boats and ocean. People on ship and crew were great. Best cruise ever. Thanks Freedom Cruises.

My two sons and myself were supposed to take the ferry to Nantucket on Friday, August 26th. I pre purchased the tickets and the website clearly said no refunds. We arrived 45 min early, When I approached the ticket window they I formed me that the water was very rough and the waves were in excess of three feet. She... More

If you stay anywhere near Harwich Port and want to get to Nantucket there is no easier way than going on Freedom Cruise Line. Fairly inexpensive, no charge for parking and plenty of time to poke around, have lunch and enjoy Nantucket.

Had a round trip cruise to Nantucket and back, very nice trip. We were greeted by a crew with a great sense of humor, and were treated as if we were regular guests, smooth ride, fast on time service, could not have asked for more.

Recommended by friends who live in Boston. Less busy than Hyannis, free parking and about a 75 minute trip. A beautiful sunny day so it was part of our day trip and a smaller boat made it feel more personal. We booked from the UK so had to get help from the company as the booking doesn't accept UK postcodes... More
