High Speed Ferries to the islands
High-speed ferries depart slowly out of Hyannis Harbor and then pick up speed once they reach Nantucket Sound, bearing passengers back and forth to Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard. From a nearby office, the Harbormaster protects the safety of people and vessels using our waterways and waterside facilities.
Hyannis Middle Harbor
Car ferries leave from the middle Harbor ahead, transporting not just passenger vehicles but cargo trucks bearing everything needed for life on the islands. To the right is a marina where you can often see enormous private yachts, while little sailboats and kayaks duck in and out among the bigger boats.
