Love this ferry!

Our trip was very easy to book. They are very straightforward on the phone. The Fast Ferry was great and just one wish, the bathrooms should be cleaned and attended to more often.

We took the last trip of the day 16:15 hrs and the boat was full as a coach trip of pensioners had pre booked the trip. It wasn't a problem, much easier than having a boat full of children. You can pre book your trip tickets if you wish - I'd say that it was advisable during the summer months... More

We took the cruise that left from Hyannis Harbor and went to Hyannisport. We got to see the Kennedy summer properties and their sailboat as well as some of the newer, nearby starter-castles. The weather was pleasant. The boat was well-kept. The announcer did a good job of telling us what we were looking at. After the cruise we took... More

Just returned from our day in Hyannis MA "what a beautiful day on the water"! My husband, aunt, uncle, and I took the 1 hour harbor tour. Aaron did a wonderful job-thank you! Enjoyed seeing and hearing about the local landmarks! Was surprised by the Kennedy compound. Recommend the harbor tour just to be on the water!!!

Grabbed a Cape Cod Daily Deal for this Harbor Cruise - it was a perfectly lovely day, Emma was a very informative hostess and the ride was smooth and easy! We had lots of room to walk around and see from both port and starboard, and loved the cruise!

Took the Around the Sound cruise from Hy-line. Boarded in Hyannis, chose to go to Nantucket first. Spent 4 hours on the island of Nantucket then Boarded and headed off to spend 6 hours on Martha's Vinyard. Then returned to Hyannis. The ferry was on time for every ride. Ferry was comfortable, the experience was well worth the cost. Take... More

We booked our tickets online for the Hy-line for transport between Hyannis and Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. The website was confusing. We had to phone the ticket office for help. Due to the hurricane, the service for the ferry was suspended for a few days. They called us to let us know of the suspension of the service and did... More

We did this tour as part of a shore excursion from a cruise. The boat was comfortable and the narration was excellent. Very good views of the homes including those on the Kennedy compound. Certainly worth the time. We were early for the sailing, so we hung out in some very comfortable Adirondack chairs until it was ready to go.... More

The ferry boat ride went very smoothly. The people on the boat were great. The people that checked you in were grouchy. When you pull up you must make a decision instantaneously of if you want to park in their lot. Decide right now! We decided to park in their lot. When paying for parking, they said their parking lot... More

Beautiful- I've never seen the Kennedy compound from the water before and it was gorgeous! Our tour guide was great and sunset was stunning from the water- make sure you sit on the right side of the boat when leaving the Harbor! It was $17 a person but many Cape Cod books have coupons for this!

Thank Lauren E
