    This is the slower ferry boat. It'll take about 2 hours from Nantucket to Hyannis. Enjoy this slow ride. Take this if your not in a rush.

    Bring your food, it's expensive and only okay on the boat

    If you bring your own bike, they let you on early, and you reap the added benefit of getting a seat on the ferry!

    Check the window at the ticket booth in case the high speed is canceled. Running to catch the slow boat is no fun! They don't make cancelations obvious and the fast boat cancels on windy days.

    Note: high speed ferries get cancelled in 20mph+ winds. And the SSA does NOT have an orderly re-reservation or queuing system. Slow boats keep running with max capacity of 750, but chaos can ensue...

    1:30 freight ferry is not listed on schedule but will take approx. 100 passengers (including those in cars). A good backup option. Costs same as slow boat.

    When you're leaving the island, make sure to throw a penny overboard as you pass Brant Point Lighthouse. Its good luck (for coming back).

    If going by car, take the M/V Eagle it is more comfortable. If hoofing it, take the M/V Iyanough. It's super fast. Read more

    Avoid the food. Sit at the front with the TV's to catch up on business news and avoid crying kids. Throw a penny at the lighthouse for good luck.

    A great way to get to and from Hyannis Port to Nantucket! Slow ferry is 2 hours. Fast ferry is 1 hour! Note the schedules are different off season vs. in season! Very close to our BB Century House Read more
