“Safe and Sound”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

Only complaint is that they don't take credit cards, so take cash. Parking is about a block away which is fine for us, but I overhead another woman say she scams them to get parking by the ticket booth--she tells them she doesn't have enough cash and they put an IOU on her car and park it close by so she will pay when she returns--takes all kinds, I guess:/

Otherwise this ferry is clean and always on time with very friendly staff and helpful suggestions for an island tour if this is your first trip to Martha's Vineyard. We took this tour 7-8 years ago and it is a good one!

“Smooth ride and ontime”

The Island queen seems to always be on time. It is clean and has a friendly staff. On rainy days they even towel down the above deck seats for you.

“Leaves on time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

The boat leaves promptly on time. Be sure to bring cash when buying tickets as they don't take credit cards. Very well organized.

“Great way to Vineyard!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

There is nothing like the first "Queen" ride of the season! All newly painted ferry, smiling faces and great assistance. This year I bought a red wagon to transport our stuff back and forth. From the valets assisting with unloading and parking to the ticket buying (bring cash!), to the ease of boarding...all seamless and pleasant!
