Martha's Vineyard

Travel Alert


Martha's VinyardPopulated with New England sea captains' homes, with white picket fences surrounding an authentic working harbor, Martha's Vineyard is known for its combination of artsy culture and New England charm.

The six towns of the island - Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs, Edgartown, Aquinnah, Chilmark and West Tisbury - retain their own character and style. The "down island" towns of Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs and Edgartown are shopping havens with attractions and restaurants to suit every taste. Oak Bluffs is home to the Flying Horses Carousel, the oldest working platform carousel in the country, as well as the famous Gingerbread Cottages. The "up island" towns of Menemsha, Chilmark and Aquinnah are quaint, quiet places reminiscent of the island's maritime past. From the Edgartown Scrimshaw Gallery to the Scottish Bake House to the pristine beaches and cliffs of Aquinnah, Martha's Vineyard is an island with something for everyone.


To Martha's Vineyard, we operate seasonal, high-speed ferry service aboard Lady Martha and seasonal, traditional service aboard Brant Point.
