Ferry access to Nantucket via the Hy-Line, Steamship Authority, or Seastreak is from either Hyannis or Fall River. The ride can take anywhere from one to three hours, depending on the departure point and which vessel you choose. Cape Air has several small planes arriving daily from Hyannis, and their partner airlines Jet Blue flies direct from Boston and New York. Once on the island, The Wave is a shuttle bus with routes to the different beaches and taxis are readily available.
