Each tour offers a full interactive narrative on Martha’s Vineyard’s rich history—written in conjunction with the Martha’s Vineyard Museum’s historical curator. With only 14 seats per tour, you’ll feel like you are on your own private tour of the island.
Your Martha’s Vineyard sightseeing tour begins as we travel from Oak Bluffs to Vineyard Haven along Vineyard Sound and the Vineyard Haven harbor front. Your knowledgeable tour guide will keep you entertained and interested with insider Vineyard knowledge. As you continue, you will see beautiful and enchanting island vistas, historic sea captains’ homes, scenes from Jaws, and much more. There is a 30 minute comfort stop in Aquinnah where you will have time to explore the Gay Head Lighthouse, see the famous clay cliffs, visit the cliff side shops or grab a bowl of the Island’s best clam chowder at Cliffhangers!
Your Martha’s Vineyard tour concludes where it began, at the Dockside Inn in Oak Bluffs. But your experience doesn’t end there! Each ticket comes with free admission to “the Cottage Museum in the “Campgrounds,” also known as the Martha’s Vineyard Camp Meeting Association (MVCMA). With its more than 400 Gingerbread Cottages and historic Tabernacle, the Campgrounds are a must-see for every visitor to Oak Bluffs. Entry to the MVCMA Cottage Museum is included with your tour van admission and you can view the interior of a typical Campground cottage, complete with period furnishings offering a glimpse of life in the Campgrounds in the 1800s. Also on display are vintage photographs and other interesting documents relating to the history of the Campgrounds.
Once you’ve had a leisurely stroll through the Campgrounds, you can visit the many shops and restaurants of nearby downtown Oak Bluffs.
