We’re ready to welcome you aboard for a full season of Nantucket By Water tours, including some of our most popular charters — and we’re launching off the dock with a bang this year.

Bring your favorite drinks along as you cruise around Nantucket Harbor! Enjoy breathtaking views of the coastline and open waters, onboard music, and great company — this experience is available for both public and private charters, so you can cruise the way you like. With space for up to 23 passengers, this tour is perfect for family vacations, trips with friends, business events, and bachelor/bachelorette parties.

Wind down this summer on a nightly cruise with a stunning Nantucket sunset — our favorite pairing! From romantic evenings to ending the day with friends on a high note, bring your favorite food and drinks and get ready to soak in that golden hour glow. There’s no better way to experience Nantucket’s coastline than with unobstructed sunset views.

Want to take a deep dive into the story behind what helped make the Nantucket name famous? Book a Whaling History Tour to explore historic Nantucket whaling landmarks and learn about life aboard the Whaleship Essex — the ship that inspired Herman Melville’s Moby Dick and the movie In the Heart of the Sea. This cruise is perfect for history buffs and those who want to get even more acquainted with the island.

Got a sweet tooth? So do we! Join us for our Harbor and Ice Cream Cruise and enjoy an ice cream treat while coasting around Nantucket Harbor. Fun for the whole family, we invite you to gaze upon world-class yachts and luxury waterfront real estate, learning Nantucket facts and history along the way. This cruise is the perfect way to cool off and take a break from the summer heat.

Looking for something a little more specific? ​​Don't know which trip is best for you? Let us help you build a tailor-made Nantucket adventure with a private charter! Perfect for groups, celebrations, and other gatherings, your cruise will be completely customized and ready to entertain the whole crowd.

Ready to truly tune into your sea-loving side? Book a Sunset Cruise on Tuesday nights and join us for Shanty Singers. This is as nautical as it gets! Sit back and listen (or join in, the more the better) as local Nantucket thespians and musicians sing sea shanties. You’ll feel like you just joined a pirate crew — without having to walk the plank!

There’s no better way to experience Nantucket than cruising along its shorelines — explore all of our tours, book your favorites, and then get ready for a summer of ocean breezes, salt air, and memories to be made.
