Since you don't need a car on MV (or you can rent one for a day or two of your visit) why not just make your transfer at Logan from your incoming flight over to Cape Air and fly into MV?
Otherwise you have to get a car rental to drive the 90 minutes to the Cape, then pay to either get the car over on the ferry (if you can still get a reservation for it) or pay to park it on the Cape while you are on MV. OR you will need to ride the bus to Woods Hole and hope it arrived on time to meet the ferry and then leave early enough on the return in case the bus back to Logan is delayed which is something that must be taken into consideration if you are trying to catch your flight. Well, those are your options. Enjoy MV.
Thanks so much to both of you for the information! The idea of flying is a good one...I'll definitely look into that for at least one way to MV. Our plan is to spend a couple days seeing Boston as well. I'd like to make it as easy as possible traveling with our three children. If we don't end up flying one of the ways, do you recommend any areas/hotels for us to stay in close to where we would pick up the ferry? We would probably spend time in Boston on the return. Thanks!
Logan airport is very close to Boston. It's so much easier to get into Boston from Logan vs getting there from the ferry, especially since it would involve a car rental that you wouldn't otherwise need (you don't want a car in Boston and centrally located hotels don't provide free parking).
Maybe I am not understanding you properly Christnp2 but the OP is talking about the ferry over to MV and not the ferry from the Boston area to Ptown.
So, E.S. do you mean that you would like to stay over and spend some time in Falmouth? There is an InnSeasons (time share) that is on the harbor and so is close to the Island Queen ferry to Oak Bluffs. But, if you have time to enjoy the accommodations in Falmouth and with the kids, you might more appreciate locating on beautiful Silver Beach and the warm waters there, the warmest on the Cape. That would be Sea Crest.
