Go To Sites:

** There are several Hotels and Homes on the Island that Steppers may rent and share. Please assemble the folks with whom you’d like to share a home and go to any of these sites to book your home directly. Again, book ASAP as rentals go fast on the Vineyard. You will want to find a home in the towns of Oak Bluffs, Edgartown, or Vineyard Haven (Vineyard Haven is sometimes listed as Tisbury. Do Not book West Tisbury).

TRAVEL: There are several options for travel. They are listed below. As with housing, please book ASAP as travel is reserved early as well.

1. Woods Hole Ferry: (steamshipauthority.com). This ferry is from Woods Hole, MA. If you want to bring your car on island, this is the only way to go. Folks in the car share the expense. It is the most popular (used) ferry to the Island. You can drive to Woods Hole (about a 4 hour drive) and either park your car in Woods Hole ($15.00 per night) and take the free shuttle back from the parking lot and walk onto the ferry ($17.00 round trip) OR make a reservation to take your car onto the island ($144.00 round trip). This ferry is a wonderful 45 minute experience.

2. Peter Pan Bus: You can catch the Peter Pan bus (peterpanbus.com) at Port Authority in NYC for around $140 round trip to Woods Hole, MA. It takes about 6-7 hours to get there, but we understand it's not a bad ride along the coast on highway 95. Then you would just pay the ferry cost for individuals ($17.00 round trip) to get to the Vineyard. The buses leave at 7am, 9:30am, 11:30 and 1pm for Woods Hole. The returns are the same times with the addition of a 4:50 pm.

3. Providence RI Ferry: There is also a wonderful ferry from Providence, RI (actually out of a little town called North Kingston right outside of Providence) called the Fast Ferry (vineyardfastferry.com). This is a great service and you will do less driving overall. It takes a couple hours to get to Providence and it leaves from Quonset Point. You cannot take your car on this ferry. Parking is conveniently located dockside and is $10 a day. It takes 90 minutes to get to the Vineyard and it is $99 round trip. It departs at 8:30AM, 1pm and 5:30pm and returns from the Vineyard at 10:30am, 3:15pm and 7:30pm.

4. The SEASTREAK (seastreak.com) is a 5 hour ferry ride that leaves from East 35th Street/FDR for the Vineyard at 4:00pm on Fridays only, but it doesn’t arrive until 9pm. Folks can get to the set in 10 minutes, but the late arrival will cut into time for the set which begins at 7. It returns on Sunday at 4pm arriving in Manhattan at 9 pm. It’s $240 round trip.

5. Airplane: Finally, you can fly into Vineyard Haven from various airports throughout the country. You can also fly into Boston and take the drive. Prices go up really quickly to unreasonable prices the closer we get to the season.

We hope you can make it! Just reserve EARLY. Acoomodations fill up quickly and you'll be all set.
