Our unique island locale means there are only two ways to arrive and depart – by sea or by air. With pristine beaches, shops, restaurants, and activities just outside our doors, we encourage you to leave the car behind. Should you need to travel to other parts of the island, Harbor View will arrange for luxury SUV car service.

Maybe it’s the sun on your face. Maybe it’s the wind in your hair…the distant cries of gulls overhead, or the briny scent of the churning sea.

Whatever the reason, the ferry to Martha’s Vineyard does more than take you to Oak Bluffs or Vineyard Haven; it transports you...escorts you to a different, more carefree state of mind. The ocean air and the beauty of the sea will make your realize your vacation's already begun, even before you make landfall on this classic island paradise.

Welcome, one and all, to the magic of Martha’s Vineyard.
