"Thanks for sending the ferry to 'rescue' the 'stranded' people on Nantucket. Our AAA tour had booked with another ferry company, which cancelled our return trip at 6:00pm. I wouldn't have minded spending the night on the island but there were many elderly people without meds and children with parents involved. While I wouldn't want to take any chances with our lives, I do feel we were only risking a bumpy ride. Thanks for helping. I will book with Hy-Line in the future and request that AAA does too."
