Ferry to Martha's Vineyard

Traditional Ferry M/V East Chop

The Hy-Line also sails to the lovely island of Martha's Vineyard several times a day during the summer. Click here for Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket Ferry Schedule Like the trip to Nantucket the cruising time is about two and a half hours. I am often asked the question, "which island is better?" You could ask a hundred Cape Codders that question and the response would probably be evenly divided between the two islands. I would be happy to tell you (in private) which Island I prefer. Some differences as I see them:


The boat docks at the main village. Although a guide tour is nice it is far from necessary on Nantucket. It is easy to see some sights by renting a bicycle on Nantucket. Great shopping and great restaurants abound. Visit the Whaling Museum

Martha's Vineyard:

There are many picturesque villages beyond where the boat leaves you on the Vineyard. Be sure to take a guided tour, rent a car on the island, or use the public transit. There is much to see on Martha's Vineyard - wonderful fishing villages and of course the Cliffs at Gay Head

Nantucket Ferry

Here you can see the big car ferry leaving for Nantucket. This photo was taken from the balcony at the Harbor House Inn. The ferry passes by both of Hyannis' beaches several times a day.
