This is Hy-Line’s 4th Edition is HERE!

Summer is here! Most of our services are up and running, the docks are busier than ever, we’ve welcomed the nicer weather, and are ready to ROCK!

Along with the start of summer around here, comes the new issue of our magazine, This is Hy-Line. We have copies available at all of our ticket offices and locations, as well as a few various community locations, and let me tell you this might be our best edition yet! I’m biased, but the quality of the articles, the advertisers, and the wealth of information this magazine offers is just beyond what we have been able to produce in the past.

Within the pages, we have a great mix of Hy-Line information, Cape & Islands info, what to see do and eat, and informative articles about the ocean and the history about the unique aspects of our home that many overlook. A highlight for sure is in the back of the magazine we include itineraries (in a loose sense of the word) for different types of travelers. We have a guide for the best Guy’s Trip on the Cape, a Girl’s Day on Nantucket, and a Couples Trip to Martha’s Vineyard from the Cape, and a Family Outing on Cape Cod. These articles are chock full of ideas, suggestions, and make sure to include a lot of margins for free time so it doesn’t feel too jam packed. Our Director of Marketing, Betsy Rich, put a lot of time and effort into these articles, and we are so hopeful that you will enjoy them!

Another new aspect of this year’s magazine is articles written by locals at different museums across the Cape & Islands. We have contributions from the team at Nantucket Historical Association, Elizabeth York and her team at Cape Cod Maritime Museum, and A. Bowdoin Van Riper at the Martha’s Vineyard Museum. Their vast knowledge, incredible images, and incredible writing abilities are showcased in the articles that they contributed to the magazine, and we cannot express enough gratitude for them! They add a flare to the magazine that could not be achieved by anyone else, as they are truly experts in their fields.
