What a relief it was not to face the Cape traffic on my visit to Nantucket. The Seastreak vessel was clean, the personnel knowledgeable and the trip was a pleasure. Parking was convenient with bus shuttle. This is a seasonal service. Check the website.

As someone who works on a different ferry sevice in the northeast, I was quite impressed with SeaStreak. Clean, fast and a nice snack bar area with alcohol. The deckhands and service workers were friendly and professional.
