Directions to A-A Island from the ferries to Martha's Vineyard

As I have discussed before, when you take a ferry to Martha's Vineyard and rent a car with us, we like to know which ferry you will be coming on. We aren't far away from any of the ferry docks in Oak Bluffs or Vineyard Haven but if you don't know where to find us, you could easily walk by and not know it. So I'm laying out directions to our offices from all of the major ferries for both towns.

Let's start with Vineyard Haven. Our Vineyard Haven office is located at 4 Water Street.

  1. Simply walk off of your boat and out to the street. Water Street runs left/right from your perspective
  2. Cross the street and turn left
  3. Walk ~100 yards, passing Stop&Shop on your right and the Black Dog Bakery on your left
  4. When you hit '5 corners', our office is immediately on the right, at the intersection of Water Street and Beach Street

In Oak Bluffs, you have the option of taking any of these five ferries. Our office is at 31 Circuit Avenue Extension, directly across the street from the Harbormaster. Here are the directions:
