Shearwater Excursion

Sail the sea on a Shearwater Excursion to see marine animals, or just to enjoy the beautiful scenery. On whale watching trips, students and scouts can witness the beauty of the largest mammals on earth. On a seal tour, groups will see seals in their natural habitat. A Harbor Cruise, complete with ice cream, includes a narrated tour of historic Nantucket Harbor. For a truly local experience, try a clamming excursion or a kids fishing trip to learn the basics. For early rising groups, take a whaling history tour in the morning.
