An awesome tour and oyster-tasting adventure!

Calling all foodies and ocean lovers! Nantucket By Water has a tour made just for you.

Join us on an Oyster Farm Cruise from June 15th through September 21st. We’ll travel up the harbor together to the Nantucket Oyster Farms to see the oyster farmers at work and learn how oysters are highly beneficial to both Nantucket’s ecosystem and culinary offerings. Oysters are a Nantucket staple, after all!

We’ll take a deep dive into the inner workings of an oyster farm, including how we practice sustainable farming on Nantucket and take our oysters from hatch all the way to harvest. You’ll learn the ecological benefits of oysters, including their valuable role in island water filtration and habitat enhancement. We’ll bring you up close to see the oyster cultivation process…And then you’ll have the chance to taste Nantucket oysters for yourself and see why they’re so loved on island.

This cruise is perfect for bachelor and bachelorette events, day trips with friends and family, and those insatiable food lovers who want a hands-on experience with oysters right from the source. 

Our Oyster Farm Cruises accommodate up to 11 passengers and run for two hours, so you’ll have plenty of time to relax, learn, and enjoy fresh oysters. Whether you’re in a small group or hosting an event, we’ll make sure your trip is one to remember. This tour runs during the day, so be sure to bring sunscreen!

On this cruise, you’ll leave from Children’s Beach pier aboard the Wampum, a 24-foot Carolina Skiff. Traveling up the coastline, you’ll have plenty of great photo opportunities to capture every moment and see Nantucket from unique perspectives you can only get on the water.

Additional information to make your experience even more enjoyable:

  • We suggest you bring cameras, sunscreen, and your favorite food or drink

  • A cooler with ice will be provided

  • Because it’s always chillier on the water, it’s a good idea to bring a few extra layers, such as a sweatshirt or jacket

  • Wear comfortable shoes

  • All tickets are non-refundable unless it is raining at the time of departure or the trip is canceled at the Captain's discretion

  • Tickets must be booked in advance

  • No refunds are given for no-shows or late arrivals who miss the boat
