Boat/Ferry Information
From Boston - Driving from Boston to Hyannis takes about two hours (80 miles). You should allow more time if travelling at the weekend in the summer. From downtown Boston take the Southeast Expressway (Route 3) to the Sagamore Bridge over the Cape Cod Canal. Take the Mid-Cape Highway (Route 6) to Route 132, which leads to Hyannis. Follow the signs to the ferry.

From New York - Driving from New York may take about six hours or more with traffic (270 miles). Take I-95 North to Providence, Rhode Island. Then take Route 195 East to the Cape Cod Canal at the Bourne Bridge. Follow along on either side of the Canal to the Sagamore Bridge and take the Mid-Cape Highway (Route 6). Turn off the Mid-Cape Highway at Route 132 and follow the signs to Hyannis.

Once you arrive in Hyannis there are 2 choices of ferry companies to Nantucket – The Steamship Authority and the Hy-Line Company. The Steamship Authority is located on South Street Dock and the Hy-Line Company is located on Ocean Street Dock. Only the Steamship Authority allows cars on the ferry. Reservations for bringing cars on and off the island must be made several weeks or even months in advance by phoning the Steamship Authority’s office.

Passengers do not need reservations but you may phone the Hy-line Company a day ahead to make first-class passenger reservations. If you decide to leave your car in Hyannis (recommended), please give yourself plenty of time to park. The regular ferry service (Hy-line and Steamship Authority) takes about two hours. They both also offer a high-speed catamaran, shortening the trip to 1 hour. Check out the links for more information and schedules. The cost of the regular ferry is approximately $26 per person and the high speed ferry is $52 per person.

The ferry terminal on Nantucket is situated downtown so if you are staying in town you will be only a short walk from your place of stay. There are taxis at the dock as well if your accommodations are not within walking distance.
