Then again from 9:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
And finally from 11:00 p.m. to 11:15 p.m.


The summer schedule is in effect from the end of May through mid-October, 2019.

During the summer, weather permitting, the ferry runs continuously from 6:45 a.m. to midnight.

Early trips: You may schedule an early trip for 6:00 a.m. from Chappaquiddick only by speaking directly with the ferry captain before 5:00 p.m. on the day before the morning of your early trip. There is an additional fee of $20 for these early trips, paid in advance and non-refundable. Notice to home owners: The fee for after-hours ferry service for a police response to automatic burglar and fire alarm activations, whether actual or false alarms: $150.



If you have an emergency that requires assistance from the police, fire, ambulance or hospital:

CALL 911. OR FROM A CELL PHONE CALL 508-693-1212.

There is an emergency phone at the front of the Chappaquiddick Firehouse.

The personnel at the Communications Center will call or page the necessary police, fire, and ferry personnel to handle emergencies on Chappaquiddick during operating hours as well as after hours when the ferry is shut down.

Missing the last ferry run because you stayed on the Vineyard side too late does not qualify as an emergency. Please do not bother the hardworking and dedicated people at the Communications Center with this type of problem. Plan ahead, keep track of the time and don’t wait until the last minute to rush to the ferry.
