Travel Info


Direct service from Boston, New York, Newark, Nantucket, Hyannis and other cities is available to Martha’s Vineyard Airport. The Harbor View Hotel is approximately a ten-minute drive from Martha’s Vineyard Airport. Alternatively, many attendees choose to fly into Boston or Providence airports and take the ferry to Martha’s Vineyard.

Ground Transportation and Ferry

Ferry service is offered from Falmouth and New Bedford, Massachusetts. If you drive, you can park on the mainland in one of the Steamship Authority parking lots and walk-on to the ferry as a passenger. When the lot at the Steamship terminal in Woods Hole is full, additional parking is available at three off-site lots in Bourne and Falmouth. Shuttle service is provided to the ticket terminal and ferry dock.

If you are bringing your car to the Island, you MUST have a reservation. You can call up to one hour prior to sailing time to reserve a space for your car; however, we strongly suggest placing your Steamship Authority Reservation as soon as your hotel reservation is confirmed. Call 508-477-8600 to make ferry reservations or book online. “Stand-by” reservations are no longer accepted.

Fast Ferry service is also available from Quonset, Rhode Island (approx. 15 minutes from Providence Airport, PVD).  Visit www.vineyardfastferry.com for booking and schedules.
