In 1845 most coastal shipping traveled through Vineyard Sound with 13,814 vessels counted in that year alone. This was due to Vineyard Haven's premiere location on the sailing routes.
The island’s chief port, Vineyard Haven, still has a busy harbor that serves as the primary ferry terminal and the foremost commercial and recreational marine center. The harbor is wide and open to the northeast but a rock breakwater protects the inner harbor beach and recreational beach from all but the worst of the incoming swells.
