By using this option, passengers will have the convenience of returning via our fast ferry to E35th St. in NYC, or to the Conner’s ferry terminal in NJ.

Martha’s Vineyard Departures: Ticketed passengers that are on Martha's Vineyard at the time of the cancellation will be put on a Seastreak ferry which will arrive in New Bedford, MA, where they will then be transported via motor coach to Grand Central Station NYC and the Conner’s Ferry Terminal in Highlands, NJ.
