“Loved our ride on our way back!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

Riding on the Island Queen is a must if you visiting Cape Cod. We particularly enjoyed our ride on our way back since it wasn't as breezy as it was on our way to MV. Views took our breath away (the dark blue waters of the ocean). Highly recommended!!

“Best bargain on Cape Cod”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

The boat is always well maintained. The crew is at your service and very pleasant and helpful. Snacks and a bar as you get on boat. Short pleasant ride. What more could you ask for along with very reasonable fares.

“Easy trip to MV”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

It was easy to purchased tickets and get on the boat. If you arrive closer to sail time you wont have as good of choice as a seat. Also, the ticket does not guarantee you will get on a specific boat unless you are in the boarding area. I was staying nearby so not sure about parking but guessing during high season it could be an issue. It is a quick 30-35 minutes over.

“Simply the Best Way to the Vineyard for a Day Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Whoever developed the business plan for the Island Queen service to MV was brilliant. Everything about a trip is well managed - from the parking areas to the ticket sellers to the dock staff to the boat staff.

A nice, comfortable trip to the Vineyard.

Thank You!

“Great Value, Falmouth to Vineyard”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

I have been taking the Island Queen from Falmouth Harbor to Martha's Vineyard since I was a little boy, and still take it with my three grown boys. In my opinion the best value for your dollar. They dont take cars, but you can bring your bicycle on board.
