    A ferry ride is one of the best ways to explore the Cape Cod, MA, area. You can arrive on the Cape via ferry, or book a ferry ride to the nearby islands as a day trip. Summertime on Cape Cod boasts mild temperatures, beautiful greenery, and some of the most exciting things to do. A ferry ride is an experience all its own. These vessels are comfortable, often have food and beverage options, and offer patrons a 360-degree view of the water. While the ride itself is something special to be remembered, the destination is even more exciting. Our favorite Cape Cod ferries travel to Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard.

    Cape Cod to Nantucket

    Nantucket is a small island off the coast of Cape Cod. The island is adorned with cobblestone streets and simple architecture that will take you back in time. While the island has a historic New England-style and feel, it’s not lacking in premier shopping, restaurants, and historic sites and museums.

    Taking a ferry to Nantucket means you won’t have a car to get you from one island destination to the other. The Nantucket Regional Transit Authority Shuttle Service is a popular method of hopping around the island. This shuttle service has fixed routes during popular tourist seasons so you can easily plan your day trip to Nantucket before arriving!

    Before boarding a ferry to Nantucket, you first have to drive 42 miles to Hyannis. After you’ve loaded up your backpack with everything you’ll need for your trip and finished your morning cup of coffee on the road, hop on a ferry to Nantucket! Travelers can choose from traditional or high-speed ferries and one-way or round trip tickets. Each of these factors affects the price of your ferry ticket. Browse ferries from Cape Cod to Nantucket and reserve yours quickly as they sell out during the popular summer months.

    Cape Cod to Martha’s Vineyard

    Martha’s Vineyard is located south of Cape Cod and is an ideal year-round destination. However, we recommend visiting during the temper-weathered summer months for the best weather and experience. This is also the best time to take a ferry to this island destination! Martha’s Vineyard is 100-square feet of outdoor recreation, shopping, eating, lighthouses, and so much more. Whether you want to challenge yourself with a day of hiking on the island or simply wish to shop and unwind, Martha’s has it all.

    After you drive to your boarding destination, hop aboard one of the several ferries from Cape Cod to Martha’s Vineyard. The Steamship Authority provides year-round ferry service to Martha’s Vineyard. Hy-Line Cruises is another wonderful place to purchase ferry tickets to Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard. Simply select the details of your voyage and Hy-Line will get you situated with the ferry that’s right for you!
