The best way to get to Martha's. Book ahead as this is a popular way to go and I'd recommend try going a little off season, either early or late season to miss the mass crowds.

The ferry was on time and comfortable. Going into Oak Bluffs was ideal, as was the departure point at Quonset. The schedule allowed us to spend a full day at the Vineyard.

Just an update on the above questions, try an Uber it should be much less than your regular cab. Also the ferry trip only takes 95 minutes not 2.5 hours.
