How To Get Here
Because Nantucket is an island, located 28 miles at sea, there are two ways to get here – by sea or by air. The Steamship Authority operates year-round ferry service and, if you have to bring a car, this is the way to go. The trip by car ferry takes 2 ¼ hours from the port of Hyannis on Cape Cod and car reservations are required well in advance, especially during the busy summer months.
The Steamship Authority also operates the Iyanough, a high speed passenger ferry that takes one hour for the crossing. The Hy-Line operates the other high speed passenger ferry, the Gray Lady, also from Hyannis. Reservations for both are highly recommended.
There are frequent flights from Hyannis to Nantucket on both Island Airlines and Nantucket Airlines. The flight, depending on the weather, is approximately 20 minutes. Direct air service is available during the season from Boston, Providence and New York on Cape Air and Continental Airlines. Reservations are strongly recommended.
