    If you plan on leaving your car, you must go to the sun lot parking lot located on 737 Gifford Ave. Only handicap parking available by the ferry. A shuttle will bring you to the ferry.

    Don't be rowdy and get kicked off the ferry. If you do, they drop you off at this floating jail by Woodshole and put you in a tank with jellyfish. So just be mindful of people around you.

    Help the woman in front of you struggling by herself with two heavy bags and the two kids to get up the ramp and onto the boat because if you don't, you don't have any business going to an island.

    Sit in the front to avoid the diesel exhaust. Don't be fooled by which end is the front. It sometimes backs in at the dock.
