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 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.

Comfortable mini cruise to Martha's Vineyard, it was quite misty with nearing arrival of hurricane Joel. The boat had good facilities on board light snacks and drinks both non and alcoholic. Very timely departures and arrivals.
