We rode from Falmouth to Martha's Vineyard. This was our first time. There was seating inside and out. We sat outside and met other travelers. The trip across was enjoyable and uneventful. Everyone on board was courteous.

The boat ride was beautiful. It was foggy but, the staff and crew were well prepared and made it a priority to inform us of the fog horn being blown. My family had a great time.
