How to get to Martha’s Vineyard?
Sail away to the island of Martha’s Vineyard aboard the Island Queen Ferry. Relax on a delightful 35 minute cruise across the sparkling waters of Vineyard Sound, and discover the fabled island of Martha’s Vineyard. Oak Bluffs, where we land, is home to “The Flying Horses,” the oldest carousel in America; lively shops and restaurants on Circuit Ave. and the Campground with its collection of multi-colored Victorian gingerbread cottages. Edgartown is like stepping back in time with its streets lined with majestic whaling captain’s homes, it’s also a shopping and dining destination. Round out your visit with a stop in Aquinnah, one of the most beautiful places in the U.S with its brilliantly colored cliffs and spectacular views. It’s also home to the Vineyard’s indigenous population, the Wampanoag tribe of Gay Head.
