Ferry tickets are open-ended for any day and departure time and are not a reservation. During our peak season of July & August, we recommend you arrive at least 45-minutes prior to departure.  In Falmouth, you are guaranteed placement on the boat once you have entered our Boarding Area and have been counted as a passenger. In Martha’s Vineyard we recommend you arrive to the Oak Bluffs Boarding Area at least 45-minutes in advance of your departure, as placement on the boat is on a first to arrive basis.

We are a passenger-only ferry and accept bicycles (additional fee applies), kayaks and paddle boards (additional fee applies) and properly leashed/crated pets. We do not carry vehicles.

Group Discounts are available for 20 or more paying passengers.  To check availability of a group booking, please call 508-548-4800 at least 3-days in advance of your departure date.
