The crew and staff were helpful and informative. FCL was the only choice to get to Nantucket on a rainy day!

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.
