why the ferry is the best way to get to martha’s vineyard

There are a handful of ways to get to the island of Martha’s Vineyard for vacation: private jet, private boat, commercial airline, commercial ferry or public ferry. Of these, in our humble opinion, the best mode of transportation by far is the Steamship Authority’s ferry service. It’s reasonably inexpensive, punctual, and wildly entertaining. Most importantly, it’s a vital, communal part of the iconic experience of a vacation on the Vineyard.
