“The Island Queen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

If your in Falmouth this is the quick and easy way to get to Martha's Vineyard. It's a short 1/2 hour to get there and while your on the ferry you can get snacks and drinks at the bar.

“Good way to get to MV but . . .”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Took a quick trip to Martha's Vineyard. Have traveled on this ferry before and had a great experience. The only trouble with today's trip was a rude employee--a man who was a senior citizen--who mocked my questions about the return trip. It was very busy and I arrived at the dock about forty-five minutes prior to departure. I wanted to make sure I was waiting in the appropriate area. This man replied, "Yes you are" and then mocked me behind my back within my hearing. I felt disrespected.

Aside from this man and the rocking seats, the experience was quite good.

During tourist season, I love the Island Queen for brief day or overnight visits to MV. Parking is convenient.

“Easy trip to the Vineyard”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

Fast, on time, helpful staff for a short trip to the Vineyard on a day of driving rain. And thankfully, pleasant passengers on a day when we all returned soaked! Would give 5 stars if they took credit cards.
