Madaket is a popular beach, especially for watching incredible sunsets. Sand is soft. The surf can be heavy, so check beach conditions. There are some lifeguards, but not the full length of the beach.

This is one of the most popular beaches on Nantucket. Very family friendly though the surf can get heavy at times. Easy to park your car in the lot near the beach, and this beach is easily accessible by bike path. Plenty of surf, wide beach is good for picnics, beach games, and surfcasting. Surfside is good for shelling in the early morning and popular in the evenings for surfcasting. Lifeguard, restrooms with diaper changing station, showers, food service.

Between Dionis and Jetties beaches; access from Cliff Road. No lifeguard, no facilities, very little parking. Gentle surf; sandbar. Many steep steps must be descended to get to the beach and ascended when you leave. Gentle surf. Lovely views of Nantucket Sound and Great Point. Nights during August and September, bioluminscent creatures can be seen in the water.

Captain Josh has come up with one of the coolest things to hit the Nantucket waterfront in a long time - the Nantucket Critter Cruise. Catch this, it’s a one hour trip for kids where they go out on the Monomoy, get to watch Captain Josh haul some fish traps and lobster gear, and then everybody gets a fishing pole to do some fishing. How cool is that? You never know what kind of critters will come up in the traps so it’s exciting stuff for the whole crew. Once the haul is up on deck, the critters you catch go into a "touch tank" so everyone can see the catch up close and even pick the critters up if you want to.

Pete he’s happy to hear about your interests and give you details about the different options available. Whether you are looking to catch giant fish, spend quality time on the water with your family or go whale watching. Every trip is an action-packed adventure.
