My husband and I were staying at a local B & B in Falmouth and they had tickets for the Ferry. It was a great experience. The crew were all polite and were very friendly and joked when I asked a question about a return trip. The ride was great and the perfect length.

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!!

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.

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.

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!
