Take a day trip to Martha's Vineyard in the comfortable and convenient transportation of a mini coach. Leave the hassle of driving up to someone else as you relax on your 1.5-hour ride to Falmouth, where you will board the ferry for Martha's Vineyard. Once at Martha's Vineyard, you will have time to explore the beautiful island on your own. Upgrade for a 3-hour island tour.

Get picked up from your Boston hotel in a mini-coach for a comfortable and relaxing 1.5-hour ride to Falmouth. Water, a light morning snack, and light commentary will be provided.

Once in Falmouth, you'll be dropped off at the Island Queen Dock where you'll board the passenger ferry. Your ferry ticket is included so you won't have to wait in line at the dock. Relax on a short 35-minute mini-cruise as you sail across the sparkling waters off the coast of Massachusetts.

You will arrive at the island of Martha's Vineyard around 9:30am. You will then have approximately six hours to explore Martha's Vineyard on your own. Your bus driver will be happy to provide you with more information and maps of the area should you wish to book additional activities.

Upgrade to a 3-hour narrated island tour to get an initial overview of the island. On the tour you will have a 15-20-minute stop at the Gay Head cliffs in scenic Aquinnah, where the first lighthouse was built. Next, you'll pass through the beautiful historic village of Edgartown. Along the way, enjoy the commentary from your professional tour guides as they share their knowledge of the island's history and present-day events. You will then have approximately 2.5 hours to explore Martha’s Vineyard on your own.

Upon completion of your day on the Island, you will board the ferry which departs at 3:45pm for a relaxing sail back to Falmouth, where the shuttle will be waiting to complete the final leg of your unforgettable day trip experience. A light snack and water will be provided on your trip back to Boston.

Great day trip, first stop in Cape Cod before boarding the ferry to Marthas Vineyard. I chose to take advantage of the bus tour around the Island and so glad I did! It's a very, very large Island
And there is no better way to see it. Had lunch at the black dog and enjoyed an amazing lobster roll with the wonderful group of friends I made in our small group. We had our picture taken together at lunch and just had a great time with lots of laughter. The guide was a local and a real estate agent so he really knew the ins and outs of the island. Lots of stops for some great pictures and souvenir shopping, my next trip out I will take the Cape Cod tour
