Day Trip to Martha's Vineyard

Day Trip to Martha's Vineyard

Get picked up from your Boston hotel in a mini-coach for a comfortable and relaxing 1.5-hour ride to Falmouth. Water and a light morning snack will be provided.

Once in Falmouth, you'll be dropped off at the Island Queen Dock where you'll board the passenger ferry. Your ferry ticket is included so you won't have to wait in line at the dock. Relax on a short 35-minute mini-cruise as you sail across the sparkling waters off the coast of Massachusetts.

You will arrive at the island of Martha's Vineyard around 9:30am. You will then have approximately six hours to explore Martha's Vineyard on your own. Your bus driver will be happy to provide you with more information and maps of the area should you wish to book additional activities.

Upgrade to a 3-hour narrated island tour to get an initial overview of the island. On the tour you will have a 30-minute stop at the Gay Head cliffs in scenic Aquinnah, where the first lighthouse was built. Next, you'll pass through the beautiful historic village of Edgartown. Along the way, enjoy the commentary from your professional tour guides as they share their knowledge of the island's history and present-day events. You will then have approximately 3.5 hours to explore Martha’s Vineyard on your own.

Upon completion of your day on the Island, you will board the ferry which departs at 3:45pm for a relaxing sail back to Falmouth, where the shuttle will be waiting to complete the final leg of your unforgettable day trip experience. A light snack and water will be provided on your trip back to Boston.


Please note: For departures from April 3-May 23 and October 15-October 30 ferry service will be provided by The Steamship Authority.

Perfect day. Lots of time to spend on Martha's Vineyard. Recommend hiring a car to explore the island despite it not being the cheapest option.

Wonderful trip- they picked us up and delivered us right from our hotel. We opted for the 3 hour island tour on top of this and we're happy we did as it started pouring rain as soon as we hit the island. Ken was.great driving us around and the overall experience was very personal and great.

This was a fantastic day out from start to finish! We were greeted by Steve who was very welcoming, friendly and charming. His offerings of muffins and water were a delight. We were a small group in a little bus but it was air conditioned and very comfortable and a stop on the way. Steve kept us entertained with stories and sights worth visiting and photographing! It was delightful! On the way home, we got crisps and water, just to keep us going. When we arrived back in Boston, Steve left us off at our hotels or where we wanted. An absolute pleasurable trip - thank you Steve! You are a credit to Boston!
