Woods Hole

Woods Hole is a port town with a broad deep water harbor that holds the ferry terminal to Martha’s Vineyard and many docks for research vessels for the science community clustered here.

With a real working drawbridge (letting boats in and out of Eel Pond), a free aquarium and the WHOI Ocean Science Discovery Center with sharks, Titanic discovery and more – Woods Hole is a wonderful place to explore with family and friends.

Twelve waterfront restaurants and myriad shops await you down on the docks of Woods Hole. Plus many shops, post office, Woods Hole Market grocery, two marinas with boat slips for rent, and a liquor store.
