Logo   Cruises & Sailing on Nantucket Island
You're on an island! Get off dry land and into a boat! It's a great way to spend a day.


Pleasure Cruises

Harbor Cruises, Straight Wharf operates the most original cruises: morning trips to pull up live lobsters from the company's own traps, afternoon "ice cream" voyages, evening and moonlight cruises.

Friendship Sloop Endeavor, Slip 15, Charter Boat Dock, Straight Wharf (tel 508-228-5585) makes five voyages daily in summer. Cruises last one or 1-1/2 hours.

Rent a Boat

Those who just like being in a boat can rent a sailboat and take sailing lessons at one of the establishments on Washington Street Extension or Steamboat Wharf.

Island Boat Rental on Straight Wharf will rent you a power boat.

Fishing Cruises

Sport fishers should wander down to Straight Wharf to talk to one of the charter boat captains about a day's run for bluefish or striped bass.
