If you are planning your first trip to Nantucket Island... you are in for a really special experience!

On your approach to Nantucket, you may be greeted by harbor seals who are often found sunning themselves on the Jetties. Once you round Brant Point Lighthouse, you will discover one of the most beautiful places on earth... Nantucket Harbor.

At the lighthouse, just give us a call on channel 68 VHF and we will personally escort you to your own rental mooring. Once you are settled on your mooring, we will stop by with a map of all the services available to you, and provide information which we hope will make your stay with us more enjoyable. The only difficult part, may be deciding what you want to do first, because the possibilities are endless!

For those who enjoy great restaurants, unique shops, beautiful old architecture, picnicking, beaches, peeking at gardens, bike is only minutes away via the harbor launch or by utilizing the two free dingy docks.

After a full day of exploring, it is delightful to return to the privacy of your boat, surrounded by the natural beauty of Nantucket. When town and the marina are too hot, the harbor always seems to provide a light breeze, and the opportunity for a refreshing dip at any time! It is difficult to find a more spectacular setting for cocktails at sunset.

For those who prefer a more tranquil experience...Within minutes you can dingy to your own private beach on Coatue or head up to Wauwinet Harbor, enjoy a picnic, or have a grand lunch at the Wauwinet House. Fishing, clamming, and swimming are all available from the mooring field. Or if you would prefer, make one of those drinks with little umbrellas, relax, and enjoy all the sights!

If you have small children, you should not miss a dingy ride to Children's Beach...where you will find a playground, a lifeguard on the beach, and an ice cream cone from the family Restaurant. On Sundays, enjoy an outdoor concert at Children's Beach. Jetties Beach is another favorite spot for families...with a food concession, lifeguards, and water equipment that can be rented.
