Martha's Vineyard Ferry and ways to get to Marthas Vineyard

driving directions to martha's vineyard

If you are traveling without your car you do not need a reservation but do try to arrive one half hour before the scheduled departure time of your ferry so that you have time to park and shuttle down to the boat.

If you are planning to bring your car, we strongly suggest you make a reservation as soon as possible with the Steamship Authority at (508) 477-8600.


There are several different ways to get to our Vineyard Haven Inn other than the Steamship Authority. Log on to MVY.com (Chamber of Commerce Website) You will find ferry schedules and all other travel options.
