Woods Hole, through which you pass between Buzzard’s Bay and Vineyard Sound, is a place of rocks and swift currents.

Every fall, harbor seals swim south to our “warmer” waters, looking for a pleasant place to pass the winter. There is always a group that sets up housekeeping in the Woods Hole Channel. You get a nice view of them as you pass by on the ferry, entering or leaving Woods Hole.
