What you can expect

We make it easy for you to spend your day on the “Best Island in the World.” Yes, that's what National Geographic travel writer Leslie Thomas had to say about Nantucket. Located 30 miles off Cape Cod's southern Coast, the “Grey Lady” as Nantucket is called, is sure to delight. With no traffic lights, no fast food restaurants and no highways, Nantucket's charm is evident upon arrival. The entire island has recently been designated as a National Historic Landmark. From it's cobblestone streets to it's lighthouses and beautiful beaches, it is easy to see why this magnificent island is such a popular summer destination.

With our Nantucket day trip, you can take a stroll down Main St. (named by Travel and Leisure Magazine as one America's Greatest Main Streets) or stop by the Whaling Museum to learn about what was once the Whaling Capital of the World. There is so much to see and do on this day trip including bus tours, bike rentals or just shopping and enjoying some of the freshest seafood that you will ever taste. However you choose to spend your day, you are sure to create memories that will last a lifetime.

Your day trip to Nantucket from Boston will start with an early morning pickup at an approved Boston Hotel. Your professional guide will make sure that you enjoy your 1 and 1/2 hour ride to the Cape Cod town of Hyannis (You will make a quick restroom/coffee stop along the way) in our late model air conditioned mini-coach. Complimentary snacks and bottled water will be provided for the journey. Once in Hyannis, you will board the Hy-Line Ferry for the 1 hour cruise to Nantucket. You will arrive in Nantucket at 10:30 am and have 5.5 hours to spend on the island. Your ferry will depart at 4:10 pm for the enjoyable trip back to Hyannis. Upon arrival in Hyannis, your mini-coach and guide will be waiting to transport you back to Boston and complete your memorable Nantucket day trip experience.
