The high speed ferry cuts your time to Nantucket in half. The ride is a bit pricey and if the sea is questionable the ferry is cancelled which is done for safety but is a problem if you need to get on or off the island. The boat is clean and the snack bar has has good food.

Took the high speed ferry to Nantucket today. Staff was friendly, ferry was clean and spacious. If you are heading to the island I recommend this carrier.

Took the Hy-Line high speed ferry to Martha's Vineyard. Good trip and just an hour long. Also booked the bus tour for our arrival. This was a 2 1/2 hour guided tour round the island. Very scenic trip with frequent stops for photos. The cost for the two of us for the return ferry and bus tour was $184. A... More

There are several trips during the day and we took the last one back The boat was clean with comfortable seat. I think the air conditioning was turned a little too high on this trip as we were freezing cold. The staff are a little brisk but I suppose they are on a time table. Nonethe less, we would use...

Be flexible or get your tickets ahead of time, especially if you're going in the morning and/or in season. We were there in late September and an hour early for the 9:30 ferry but it was sold out. We were pretty surprised that there were so many people there, but we easily got on the 11:15am ferry and were over... More

We used Hy-Line Cruises 3 times in 5 days during September 2016, and found the staff rude from the time we bought tickets through the time we got off the last boat. The worst was when I was the last person getting off the ship. The handle on my luggage was stuck, but instead of offering to help, two crew... More

A wonderful boat ride! We were shocked at the comfortable cabin. Hi-back cushioned seats and tables to sit at, TV's to watch and very nice staff. Didn't feel like we were on the water. Outside seating if you prefer it. Get there early to get the best seats.

Parking can be an issue but the Hy-Line staff direct you to other lots if theirs are full. The staff are helpful, we had a good trip to Nantucket and back. A couple 'suggestions' for travelers: 1) While waiting to board, it is not considerate of your fellow ship-mates to have one person wait in line while the other 4... More
