Several companies based here offer small planes for charter.

By Ferryboat

Hyannis has two main ferry docks (map), at the foot of Ocean Street for Hy-Line Cruises passenger ferries to Nantucket, and Martha's Vineyard islands, and at the foot of Pleasant Street for the passenger and car ferries operated by the Steamship Authority (tel 508-477-8600).

Shuttle buses connect the Hyannis Transportation Center to the ferry docks, but you can walk there in about 15 minutes if your luggage is not heavy.
