Had a wonderful time traveling across the islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard with my daughter on vacation. The staff is not only knowledgeable but very courteous as well. Excellent customer service which is rare today! The ferry is a pleasant ride for all ages!

Crew and ground personnel very friendly and accommodating. They even switched us to an earlier boat on way back. Boat is clean. There are bathrooms. Trip takes one hour from Hyannis to Martha’s Vineyard/ oaks bluff.

Prior to yesterday, I had only ever taken the lumbering ferry to Nantucket. It took well over two hours each way, and was a bit austere in its comforts. Yesterday was the first time that I had the chance to take the high-speed ferry. Wow!...More

We took a Hy Line Ferry from Nantucket to Hyannis. It was a good and comfortable trip. No real issues. This ferry was larger than the first one we took. Red seats are first class. Not sure if it is worth paying more for first...More

While I prefer to fly to Nantucket, sometimes I drive to Hyannis and take ferry. The High Speed service makes it somewhat more pleasurable. Nice snack bar. Good crew. Clean ship reasonable priced.

My husband and i took the ferry from Hyannis to Nantucket today. Did not know you had to prebook a bus tour. As a disabled veteran found many of shops and restaurants not accessible. Roads uneven and many bricks missing making it dangerous. Hotels should...More
