Everything You Need to Know About Our Private Charters

Whether it’s your birthday, your wedding day, or just a regular old Tuesday, our Nantucket by Water private charters are a great way to curate an unforgettable experience on the island for friends and family! By booking a private charter, it allows us to really customize your time on board with all of your wants and needs — so from the food, to the music, to the route, we can work together to create the cruise of your dreams. Ready to find out which private charter is right for you? Let’s dive in…

Option #1: The Wampum

The Wampum is the perfect choice for small groups of up to 11 passengers. Departing from Children’s Beach Public Pier, this 24-foot Carolina Skiff is typically captained by Max Perkins and Alex Perkins. With a bluetooth stereo and a cooler with complimentary ice, you can bring your own drinks and set up a playlist that’ll have everyone dancing! Catering is also available upon request.

This charter is ideal for birthday parties, small get-togethers, newly engaged couples looking to celebrate with their favorite people, or a group of family and friends looking for a fun Nantucket activity to share together. 

Private charters on the Wampum start at $1,000, but reach out to our team for a customized quote.
