Headstart and Reservation Opening Dates Announced for Summer 2022

Posted: December 15, 2021

FALMOUTH (December 15, 2021) – The Woods Hole, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket Steamship Authority is pleased to announce its Headstart and Reservation Opening Dates for the 2022 summer season.

HEADSTART RESERVATIONS OPENING: JANUARY 11, 2022

Starting at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, January 11, 2022, Headstart customers (who must be in our Excursion and Preferred programs to participate) may make reservations online and via U.S. mail for travel from May 17, 2022, through October 19, 2022. Eligible customers may make up to five one-way or round-trip reservations for travel during the summer schedule. Of those five, three may be made as transferable reservations, which can be transferred to another individual (such as a friend or family member) prior to travel.

For more information and to download the 2022 Headstart Reservation Application, please visit www.steamshipauthority.com/about/forms and scroll down to the Reservation Forms section.

Island preferred or excursion customers who have a profile ending in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7 or 9) must update their profile information by Dec. 31, 2021, to keep receiving the benefits of the program, including participation in Headstart. The 2022 applications are available online at www.steamshipauthority.com/about/forms.

2022 SUMMER RESERVATION OPENING DATES

As has been the case since 2019, there will be two general online openings – one for Nantucket and one for Martha’s Vineyard. The Authority will have extra technical support on site and the Reservation Office will have extended hours should a customer need assistance with their login password or PIN. The Authority will also continue to use a virtual waiting room that allows customers to see their “place” in line and the approximate wait time until they can make a transaction, eliminating the need for refreshing the website.

Reservations for travel from May 17, 2022, through October 19, 2022, can be made starting at 5 a.m. EST on January 18, 2022. Reservations submitted via postal mail (up to five one-way or round-trip reservations will be accepted per mailing) will be processed as received beginning on this date.
