• Ferry service to the islands resumes


    HYANNIS, Mass. - Hyannis ferry service to and from Nantucket has resumed Saturday morning after days of cancellations due to then Tropical Storm Jose.

    For the past few days, people have been either unable to get to Nantucket, or stuck on the island with no way off. The high-speed ferry which takes people from Hyannis to Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket, has had services canceled due to bad weather conditions.

    Some that Boston 25 News spoke to say they had tickets refunded several times over the past few days.

    Finally, the high-speed services to and from Nantucket resumed Saturday morning. 

    A local couple getting married on Nantucket Saturday are hoping their guests will be able to make it. When Boston 25 spoke with Mary Wheeler and Tom Grape on Friday, they said only six of the 100-plus guests they invited had made it to the island. Even the band, flowers and officant couldn't get there. Guests we spoke to Saturday morning say the wedding was moved back a few hours and in the hopes everyone could get there on the Saturday morning ferries.
