Every trip on the fast ferry is a delight! Grab a beverage and feast your eyes on the beauty of the Cape and Martha's Vineyard. Fresh air seats are the best!

Great experience. Being a native Rhode Islander I learned how much I didn't know about the history of Narragansett Bay. The ferry was great and the narrator was entertaining and informative for the whole hour and 45 minutes.

Could not have enjoyed this experience more. The boat was comfortable and the narrator was fantastic the whole time. We learned so much about the lighthouses around Newport as well as a bunch of history about the Narragansett Bay in general. My fiance and I also brought our dog with us. We were a bit nervous to bring her, but the ride was so smooth and the crew and fellow passengers were so kind that we and our pup had an amazing time. Would highly recommend to anyone, whether you want to do the Lighthouse cruise or a longer cruise to Martha's Vineyard!

a great day trip to an outstanding Island off the coast but is a nice easy trip on the ferry going to Martha's Vinyard. The Vinyard a very busy place in the summer and there are things to see and places to visit all over the place. Stores that have everything you ever could want or need. Lots of junk as well but that is part of the fun.
Restaurants of every kind of food. Great bars. If you bring your bike or car you can get around the Island fast. But they have cabs and busses so you can get around.
Good for the entire family and the kids will have a ball here.The ferry is very easy to get to. and well taken care of. great crew. Nice seating. It is worth it just for the ride over and back to the mainland. Pritty much on time every day they run.

The staff was helpful and friendly. The boat trip was smooth. The captain was informative and everyone wore masks. I was glad we could take this when the Fast Ferry from NY to OB was cancelled last minute. I look forward to taking this trip again in the future.

Service to Martha's Vinyard is on time and smooth. The location in Rhode Island, while it has no frills, is accessible and not prone to traffic jams. Onboard staff is courteous and professional. And the trip is short: 95 minutes.

Easy booking and plenty of parking. Everytime we have used th M.V. Fast Ferry it is on-time almost to the minute. Ferry is very clean and the ride is great even in rough waters. Would HIGHLY recommend.

We had a day trip to Martha's Vineyard and Martha's Vineyard Fast Ferry was the best service! Our trip over was a little rough and a little slower then we thought but it was a beautiful day and we really enjoyed our time on the Island. The crew was terrific and professional! Great memories and we will definitely enjoy a trip with Martha's Vineyard Fast Ferry again!

Very easy to make auto reservation online. Arrived 40 minutes early which was plenty of time - could have done 30 minutes. Embarking and disembarking process smooth.
