Marci Tyldesley, of Regan Communications, just told us about some very good

“cheap travel” Cape Cod news from the Steamship Authority: big savings on high speed ferry, same-day travel from Hyannis to Nantucket, Mass.

The high speed ferry Iyanough starts its service April 24 with passengers being able to travel round-trip from Hyannis to Nantucket on the same day for only $50 Monday through Thursday ($25 for children 5-12 years old). That’s a a $17 savings for adults and $14 discount for children. This special deal is good through the end of the year.

“We are pleased to offer a special round trip fare from the mainland on our high-speed ferry for those customers who have some flexibility with their schedule to travel during the week instead of on the weekends when we are generally busier,” said Wayne Lamson, general manager of the Steamship Authority. “With high gas prices expected to continue this summer, we hope this offers an affordable day trip to Nantucket for both visitors and residents on the Cape.”

With ferry service from Woods Hole to Martha’s Vineyard and Hyannis to Nantucket, all Steamship Authority vessels have on-board snack bars, free Wi-Fi and are handicapped accessible. Parking is available with free shuttle service to the terminals. For reservations or more information, visit or call 508-477-8600.

Thanks so much, Marci, for this great information!
