purchase passenger tickets in the Woods Hole terminal. If you are
bringing a vehicle, you will need to make a reservation by calling

Where Do I Park My
Car On The Mainland? If you are not brining your car to the island, be sure to leave plenty of time to park your car,
30-45 minutes. You will most likely have to park at the SSA's Palmer Ave. lot
in Falmouth and be shuttled to the ferry (click
