Good, quick efficient service to MV. Not crowded during the week in September. Had our choice of seating. Good snack bar for coffee and drinks. Fun for a day trip.

It was really convenient going from Falmouth to Martha's Vineyard. I visited off season so had to get to Woods Hole which was easy. Took a shuttle bus from Falmouth to Woods Hole -- inexpensive and really quick.

We took the Island Queen Ferry across to Martha's Vineyard. You can purchase snacks and drinks on the ride over - capable and friendly crew & water a little rough.

The Island Queen Ferry is a favorite for Falmouth/Martha's Vineyard visitors and residents as well. No reservations needed or offered. Bikes are allowed and there is a snack bar aboard. Easy traveling mode during the summer months!

Hello Dice, There is no ferry service that takes vehicles from Boston to Cape Cod. However, the drive-time from Boston to the bridges at the start of Cape Cod is approximately 60 to 75-minutes.

Hello, Is there a sun shade while waiting for the boat now this year 2017? I have a baby and toddler that might have problems staying under the sun for long periods especially if the boat is delayed. How busy is the Labor Day weekend?
