My family of four used this for a day trip to Martha's Vineyard. We stayed in Falmouth within walking distance and took the morning ferry onto the island. This was a perfect way to see Martha Vineyard in a day, using the buses on the island when we got there.

We got here early not knowing what the group would be like being the last day of the round trip for MV. This was our first time going and the Island Queen was the way to go.

This was a busy ferry with a max capacity of 500 people. We discovered this ferry by accident and could have taken the Steamship Authority line over to the Island as we later learned. The ferry was fast and the crew well organized. Well worth the extra $$

This takes about 40 minutes and is a lovely trip across Vineyard Sound...no cars on board, no pollution. It lands at Oak Bluffs, one of the historic areas, and is in close proximity to bus line that goes to Edgartown as well as Vineyard Haven.

Took a day trip to Martha's Vineyard on the Island Queen. Trip was fine and not too expensive as long as you avoid the onsite parking. If you don't mind a bit of a walk then you can find off street parking fairly close by. Only suitable for day trips as overnight street parking is illegal in Falmouth apparently
