15 minutes in the air. That's all it takes to fly from Hyannis to the nearby islands of Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard.
If you're not a "ferry person", or if you just want to get there as quickly as possible, a flight from Barnstable Municipal Airport in Hyannis will have you on-island in no time.
And you'll have a great view along the way!
