A passenger ferry is a great way to arrive on Cape Cod, or to visit the islands of Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket. The journey to get there is half the fun, with amenities including comfortable seating, on-board concessions and naturally, the scenic ocean views. Both regular and high-speed passenger ferries can take you from Boston to Provincetown (seasonally) and to the islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard year-round. Ferries depart from Falmouth Harbor, Woods Hole and Hyannis Harbor to Martha’s Vineyard, and ferries to Nantucket depart from Hyannis Harbor. While the Woods Hole to Martha’s Vineyard ferry can accommodate cars, there’s no need to take a car. Both islands have excellent public transportation service, so take your bicycle instead!
