Who We Are

Getting Here

Timeless Adventure

Getting to the island is timeless adventure, and it’s a Vineyard tradition shared by generations of visitors. No matter how you get here, we know that the journey will put you in the right frame of mind-leaving the mainland where it belongs, on the mainland!

Below you’ll find a few ways to get to the island. 


By Ferry,
With Your Car

If you do decide to bring your car over to the Island, auto reservations are required and should be made as soon as possible with the Steamship Authority. The Steamship Authority operates the only automobile ferry service to the Island from Woods Hole on Cape Cod (a short 45-minute crossing). These large vessels operate hourly, year-round.

To arrange auto reservations, contact the Steamship Authority by either calling them directly at (508) 477-8600 or booking on-line via their website. Reservations for passengers are unnecessary.

Note: When you inquire about your automobile reservation, if you can’t get your first request, ask to have your name put on the Waiting List. It usually works out very well and, more often than not, you’ll get the reservation time you desire.


By Ferry,
Without Your Car

We offer a convenient on-Island pick-up/drop-off service for our guests from Falmouth, Massachusetts, so long as the boat/transfer reservation is pre-reserved with us. The crossing time takes 35 minutes.

The Island Queen offers mainland parking within walking distance to the dock. The boat line has guaranteed Winnetu guests parking availability in their lots — a special benefit — so long as a Winnetu voucher is shown to the parking attendant. Mainland parking is $20.00 per day (cash or travelers checks only).

To utilize this exclusive service, our guests must pre-reserve on-line on our website’s Getting Here page. Guests who choose not to pre-reserve with us may utilize the Island Queen ferry on their own, but will not have guaranteed parking privileges or a pick-up on-Island to/from the Resort. (Taxis are available on your own).
