Have your summer vacations turned routine? Hum-drum, same old, same old? Want to find a more interesting locale where you can take in gorgeous sights, shop for mementos in fun shops, and maybe have an adventure or two? If that seems like a lot of work, or at least a lot of travel time, Seastreak has great news for you. This summer, we’re making it comfortable and convenient to get to Nantucket Island, MA! We’ll save you time and money when you hop a ride with us. Here’s a couple things you can do when you’re visiting this historic place.
Nantucket Shipwreck and Lifesaving Museum
Piloting a ship isn’t as easy as steering a car even today, but way back when, it could be outright dangerous. Around Nantucket, navigating could be a real challenge without the advantages of modern equipment. (Don’t worry, our ferries have this covered. We’re pros at this.) Back in the 19th century, the waters around the island were called “a graveyard of the Atlantic”.
Where there’s sinking ships, there’s heroes who risk themselves to save mariners in trouble. The Nantucket Shipwreck and Lifesaving Museum, at 158 Polpis Road, displays memorabilia related those brave souls who worked to save sailors in trouble.
Nantucket Bike Tours
For folks who’d rather get out and stretch their legs than wander around indoors, take a spin around Nantucket with Nantucket Bike Tours. They provide the bikes, and you provide the pedaling power! The island is full of incredible vistas, picturesque beaches, and amazing wildlife. You can see it all up close while catching the highlights of the area. Take one of their classic tours, or design a custom one to catch all your favorite places.
Whether you want to play hard, or take it easy, Nantucket has what you’re looking for! Get there in style on one of Seastreak’s modern catamarans. We’re the only civilized way to sail!
