    Evidence as to why monopolies should be broken up. These are arrogant, uncaring people.

    Very well run, great customer service, very reasonably priced

    Got the job done but watching ferry staff yell at seniors to move-it while loading on a Friday was definitely unpleasant.

    The employees are not customer focused and it feels like a government agency. In this day an age they should have a mobile app to make reservations.

    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.

    Liquor store around the corner. Grab some beer or wine for the boat ride over its way cheaper and way better than what the boat has!

    Bring a snack with you. The boat prices will deplete your funds before you reach the rock.

    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.

    If you get to the boat early, check out the Woods Hole Science Aquarium. Small, but entertaining for kids and best of all, it's FREE!! My brother and I have been going since the 80's!!

    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.
