Seastreak Sets Sail from New Bedford to Nantucket

Seastreak is delighted to announce the inauguration of the New Bedford-Nantucket ferry connection.

The Seastreak Whaling City Express has a new course plotted, and will be providing seasonal passenger ferry service between New Bedford and Nantucket in under two hours!

James Barker, Seastreak President, said “Seastreak is delighted to announce the inauguration of the New Bedford-Nantucket ferry connection. It is an indication of our continuing growth in the level of service we provide and a renewal of the historical relationship that exists between the island of Nantucket and the Whaling City. The benefits are across the board for all of our constituencies. Our passengers can avoid the stress of sitting in Cape traffic, and Cape roads are relieved of traffic congestion during the summer months. ”

John Silvia, Seastreak Operations Manager, stated “We are pleased with the Steamship Authority’s decision to allow the expanded service. The schedule will allow residents of Nantucket and visitors alike to travel round trip in one day and conduct business either on the mainland, or on the island. There are special island resident, senior, and child fares available, and customers can book reservations directly on the Seastreak website.”

The new route will begin operating with two weekday trips Monday through Thursday and three weekend trips Friday through Sunday, beginning May 27, 2016 through September 6, 2016.
