Martha's Vineyard Day Trip from Providence

Your day trip to Martha's Vineyard from Providence begins with hotel pickup in the morning for the 35-minute drive to the port town of New Bedford, Massachusetts, where you'll hop aboard the SeaStreak Fast Ferry (departs at 9am). During the 1-hour ride, admire views of the New Bedford and Fairhaven seascapes before docking at Oak Bluffs on the island. Your time on Martha's Vineyard is independent to see the attractions that interest you, from historic sites to sandy beaches to seafood restaurants. You can ride the shuttle bus anywhere on the island (own expense; $8 for the whole day), and check out popular locations like the Aquinnah Cliffs, Edgartown Harbor Lighthouse, the gingerbread houses, and more. Or perhaps do some shopping and enjoy the serenity of strolling down island roads without ever leaving Oak Bluffs. Whatever you choose to do, make sure you return to Oak Bluffs in time for the 5:45pm ferry departure back to New Bedford, where you'll be met at the dock by your driver for the return drive to Providence for hotel drop-off.
