Island Transportation Simplified
Martha's Vineyard is directly accessible by ferry or plane. The great majority of our visitors arrive by ferry. Daily, year round automobile and passenger ferry service is available from Woods Hole, Massachusetts via the Steamship Authority ferries. Summer-only passenger-only ferry service is also available from New Bedford, Massachusetts on the Seastreak Ferry, from Falmouth Harbor, Massachusetts aboard the Island Queen as well as the little known Patriot Boats, from Quonset Point RI aboard the Vineyard Fast Ferry, from Hyannis MA aboard the Hy-Line Ferry. All ferry services offer pay-parking lots at their mainland docks for about $15.00 per calendar day.
