Nantucket Travel: Getting Here

As you make your vacation plans for Nantucket, here is some useful info. Mostly getting to Nantucket and Century House is adventurous and memorable. Guests asks how to get here and most already know that you can only get here by boat or plane (unless you swim, not recommended). Occasionally people will ask if there is a bridge to Nantucket.  No, there isn't a bridge or a tunnel to Nantucket.

You can fly from the Cape Cod - Hyannis area to Nantucket in about 15 minutes. You can take the ferry for 1 hr. or the slow ferry, which is 2 hr. and 15 minutes. The slow ferry takes cars, and you have to make reservations in advance or you will likely not have space. Once you get here you can walk to Century House from either one of the two Nantucket ferry docks: Steamboat Wharf or Straight Wharf depending which ferry you decide to take. Steamship Authority or Hy-Line Cruises are the two ferry companies. Steamship Authority docks on Nantucket at Steamboat Wharf, Hy-Line Cruises docks at Straight Wharf.

Check the airport closest to you. You might find out you can fly to Nantucket directly. You can also fly into Boston, MA. You can then either rent a car and drive to Hyannis, MA, or you can take the Plymouth-Brockton bus-line directly into Hyannis, MA. You can check the Plymouth-Brockton schedule, they depart often directly from Boston Airport.

First timers? We recommend taking the ferry, as you will make memories for a lifetime.

It snowed again on Nantucket! It was so beautiful and charming. It's always like so on Nantucket but it makes it special seeing Nantucket all white. So I got my camera and took a couple photos. Enjoy them!
