What You Can Expect

Day Trip to Martha's Vineyard

Day Trip to Martha's Vineyard

Begin with a good morning hotel pickup followed by a casual 1.5-hour drive by mini-coach from Boston to Falmouth, MA. Water and a morning snack  and light commentary will be provided on the trip.

Upon arrival in Falmouth, it’s off to the Island Queen Dock to board the ferry (ticket included) to Martha’s Vineyard. Enjoy a brief 35-minute mini-cruise across Vineyard Sound to the island destination, arriving on Martha's Vineyard around 9:30am. From there, each passenger will have six hours to explore Martha's Vineyard at their leisure.

For an introduction to the island, an optional 3-hour tour is available. Visit the Gay Head Light, an iconic island lighthouse in Aquinnah. Travel through the beautiful historic village of Edgartown and learn about the area’s history from a guide.  After the tour, you will have about 2.5 hours to continue to explore the island on our own.

Board the ferry for a 3:45pm departure and leisurely cruise back to Falmouth, where a return shuttle awaits to complete this great island experience. Water and a light snack will be provided on the trip back to Boston and your designated hotel.

There is no way to visit all of Martha’s Vineyard in one day unless you take this tour. The driver Anthony was humorous and extremely knowledgeable about the different locations around the island.

If you're at a major hotel downtown Boston, the pickup/dropoff is very nice. Our driver was super courteous and very clear about what we were doing. Pay for the extra tour on the island unless you have a way of getting around on your own. Our tour driver on the island was great, and the ferry ride out and back was nice and cool which was much needed on a warm summer day.

My family and I had a great time on the day trip to Martha’s Vineyard. Steve, the owner, was very helpful with our booking since we scheduled it at the last minute. Our driver, Jeff, was awesome. Made sure we arrived early and was very friendly. Overall, a great experience!

New England Tours is a top notch and well oiled operation. We were picked up from our hotel exactly as promised and what an experience with a wonderful guide Kevin who was very informative and thoughtful through our drive to Falmouth to board the Island Queen to Martha’s Vineyard. Alexander was great driving us through the island and and pointing out to all details. This one day outing is great and highly recommended and very reasonable in price. I’m glad my family and I did it.

Absolutely beautiful. Definitely going back to stay as day trip wasn't long enough. All the Jaws locations were fab especially the Jaws Bridge. Highlight was getting to meet one of the cast from the first film, awesome. Tour company was excellent. Definitely recommend booking if your visiting Boston.

I am a History Nerd, so this was an AWESOME Trip to Martha's Vineyard. I went during the off-season in October. There were very few tourists, many shops and restaurants were closed for the season. I do not enjoy being in larger crowds of people. So, this was perfect for me. I was able to visit museums, ride the bus, and dine without having to wait in lines. The off-season also provided me with opportunities to speak with a variety of locals many of whom leave during the height of the tourist season. Everyone was friendly and I learned some interesting facts about the Martha's Vineyard communities. Since I have had an educational and relaxing trip,I plan to visit during the summer!
