Easy 35 min trip to MV. Last two boats coming back can be crowded/full during peak. Parking makes this a great option.

Enjoyed the ride to MV. Island Queen dock was walking distance from our hotel. The ship was clean and the staff professional.

We rode a noon ride out and visited Martha’s Vineyard then rode the 5:15 back. Smooth rides both times, and the ship and rest rooms were clean both ways. Courteous staff and good rates. We would recommend the island queen to anyone.

Nice ride over, very smooth sailing, shorter and less expensive then some of the other carriers, nice crew, parking is kind of a haul but no other complaints!

First trip on the ferry to Martha's Vineyard. The ferry is huge and can hold a lot of people, bikes and strollers. There was plenty of room and seating on board. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
