Along the way enjoy some complimentary snacks and bottled water or read over the island guide book you will get to help you plan out your 6 hours at Martha's Vineyard. Avoid the lines at the ferry ticket window, pick your seat and relax on the 35 minute ferry ride.
If you choose to purchase the upgrade ticket, when you arrive at Martha's Vineyard you will enjoy a 3-hour tour and learn about the island while visiting most of it. If a tour is not for you, than choose the option without the 3-hour narrated tour and perhaps rent a bike or jeep, or use public transportation to see the island. Whatever you choose, you will also have a discount card that is valid at some island restaurants and local attractions.
Be sure to visit the amazing gingerbread cottages in the town of Oak Bluffs. The town of Edgartown is known for it's whaling captain's homes and quaint downtown shops. The breathtaking Gay Head Cliffs and lighthouse in the town of Aquinnah are a must see while visiting Martha's Vineyard. For all you 'Jaws' fans this is the island where it all began.
