Nice ferry ride, but the trip os very quick. Plenty of seating, snack bar, and nice views. I expected a more frequent schedule, especially during summer.

It is the fast way to get to the island.
Parking managed by Island Queen is available close to the boarding area in Falmouth at $15.
You need to be there at least half an hour before leaving. There is not possibility of booking, first come first serve.
Very practical and cheap if you compare it to the fare you pay from New bedford.

Clean, large ferry. Only 30 min to Martha's Vineyard or back. Nice trip. I just wish they offered a few more ferries through the day

The trip to Martha's Vineyard from Falmouth is the way to go if you are going to the Vineyard. Less traffic hassle and less distance. You are asked to be there 30 mins. before sailing and if you don't take an early sailing, parking is at a premium. It's a nice 45 min ride on a very clean vessel with refreshments and rest rooms. I would recommend staying as far forward as possible due to engine noise in the rear. Getting off is easy and I would suggest avoiding the last trip back.

We debated this ferry over the others, this was the fastest and closest to where we were staying. My children seemed annoyed that we arrived so early but once we saw the MASSIVE line behind us it seemed worth it. It is VERY large and I couldn't imagine how many people it takes to fill. However when returning from MV be SURE you are early especially on the last few ferries. I heard a few people saying they hadn't gotten on the previous one. A last minute hotel on the island can be expensive and hard to find if you miss the last one!
