Easy to get to and a quick ride to Oak Bluffs. 20 minute ride one way. Best time to go is mid week when the crowds are small. Or when leaving Falmouth mid to late afternoon when everyone is leaving the island for the mainland....More

Best way (maybe the only?) to get to Martha's Vineyard from East Falmouth! Walking distance from our hotel but we drove due to rain. CASH ONLY

Required to be in holding pen 40 minutes before getting on the boat. This waiting area really needs to be more accommodating with more shade and seats. Very long to wait in the hot sun. Packed in like a cattle pen.

They are very good about sticking to their schedule - both leaving and returning! They got this process down pretty darn well!

Easy access, parking ... drink service was good! Boats are every hour which makes planning trip short notice easy, boarding is first come first serve.

Located on a perfect location , Just 35 min to Oak bluff area to Martha's Vineyard. Friendly staff and huge boat. The only bad part is the frequency of the timing and it do not operate till late hours in summer. Budget friendly and spacious.

Took it to Oaks Bluff which is really a tourist town. Good diversion for the day but get out of town on a bike once there and explore.

We took the Island Queen from Martha's Vineyard over to Falmouth to stay at the Cape Cod Campresort. It was so much fun we hated to leave the boat.
