The First Step (or Sail, or Flight)

The classic way to arrive is on “the boat,” as we call all the Steamship Authority ferries. There are also several seasonal ferries to choose from, and no prettier flight than Cape Air’s service (operated by Jet Blue) from Providence or Boston on a Friday afternoon.
A few Islanders still have faded “no jets” bumper stickers on their rusty bumpers, but no one can really blame a Vineyard-deprived soul for wanting to skip the joys of Interstate 95 and come direct from NYC. The only problem is no one can honestly predict what airline will offer the service from year to year.
