Shearwater Excursions

Nantucket has a history steeped in the whaling industry.  Travel 15-25 miles offshore on the Shearwater to see humpback, finback and minke whales as well as a variety of other marine animals and birds.  With an average of 30 to 60 identified whales per trip, Shearwater guarantees whale sightings!  They also offer Nantucket Seal Cruises to Muskeget Island, Nantucket Harbor Cruises and fishing charters.

A spectacular way to see Nantucket is by sea – set sail on the wooden Friendship sloop Endeavor!  Captain Jim Genthner (who incidentally built the Endeavor) will share the wealth knowledge he has gained in over 25 years experience sailing the waters of Nantucket.  For Nantucket romance, nothing beats a sunset cruise on the Endeavor!  Feel free to bring snacks and beverages on the sloop – or perhaps a bottle of wine (don’t forget the glasses).

Join us at our Nantucket bed and breakfast and enjoy a memorable Nantucket sailing or Whale Watching tour.
