For our guests that will not be arriving by boat, there are a number of convenient options to chose from when getting to the island. Nantucket Island is located 26 miles south of Cape Cod and is easily reached year-round by air or high-speed ferry. For guests arriving by air and by sea, Nantucket is quite accessible, and many cities offer seasonal air travel to the island.
Hy-Line Cruises ferry service is available from the Ocean Street Dock in Hyannis, Massachusetts. Parking is available near the dock for a daily fee. Hy-Line Cruises operates a high-speed passenger service aboard the vessel Grey Lady, which takes approximately one hour. Reservations are recommended.
We discourage guests from bringing cars on island. However, if you must bring a car, contact the Steamship Authority at South Street Dock in Hyannis. The car ferry takes two hours and 15 minutes and reservations are required.
