• Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket Ferry - Woods Hole, Massachusetts

      Roadtrip Attraction
      Although Cape Cod itself is a relaxing getaway from the mainland, you can get even farther away to the quaint and scenic islands of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket with ferry service provided by the steamship authority conveniently and frequently departing from the Cape town of Woods Hole.

      If you go:
      Reservations are recommended for vehicles. The ferry has wi-fi and refreshments available. Bring your vehicle along (it's a pit pricey) or just explore the islands by foot or bicycle. One modest parking fee buys your vehicle 24 hours in the terminal lot.

        This information came from Michelle from the Brass Latern Inn

        Correction - ferries to Nantucket leave from the Steamship Authority terminal and the HyLine terminal in HYANNIS.

        Yes, that is correct. My apologies for not making that clear.
