Getting from Boston to Marthas Vineyard

I'm going to be staying in Boston (Juries) and am wondering if it possible to have a day trip to Marthas Vineyard, without going on trains/buses all day. So far from what I've seen I have not found a way to do it where that's convenient enough. Is there there any direct route to the ferry that's reasonably quick?

Depends, I guess, on how you define all day. The trip to Falmouth will take about an hour and a half each way. Then you have to wait for the ferry, at least half an hour each way. Then take the ferry, about 45 minutes each way. That's about 6 hours of travel time. Is that all day for you?

You could go to Rockport instead. It's about an hour each way on the commuter rail.

The only fast way to Martha's Vineyard is by air and it's very expensive. Check with Cape Air for schedules.
