New Yorkers planning to catch the boat to Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard will have to find another way — as ferry company SeaStreak announced its route for New England-bound vacationers will be out-of-service until Sept. 3.
“All weekly and holiday service on the long route between NYC/NJ and Martha’s Vineyard/Nantucket has been suspended through September 3, 2021,” effective July 23, the company said on its website.
The online service alert advised travelers to check the company’s webpage “from time to time for updates.”
Commodore, the boat used on the route, is out of service, the notice said.
The 150-foot boat ran aground in Brooklyn on June 5 — forcing the evacuation of 118 civilians and seven crew members, the Martha’s Vineyard Times reported. It is unclear if there is any connection between that mishap and the boat going out of service at the height of the summer travel season.
The interstate ocean-liner was scheduled to depart the New York region every Friday and return from the Bay State on Sundays.
SeaStreak will refund tickets or transfer them to another date, the company said.
A round-trip NYC-to-Nantucket ticket costs $260 on most days and $330 on holidays, according to SeaStreak’s website. Round-trip flights currently sell for less than $200.
