In the historic harbor of Nantucket, the Nantucket Boat Basin is within walking distance to several boutique shops and outstanding restaurants along charming cobblestone streets. The marina is conveniently located near several beaches, lighthouses, and biking trails making it a perfect stop off for a day or weekend trip.
When you moor your boat at this marina you’re provided with free Wi-Fi access, slip-side cable TV, children and pet amenities like toys, welcome bag, and even concierge service. With their pre-arrival concierge service you can call ahead and have all of your entertainment, rentals, and restaurant needs arranged in advance. You can also dispose of waste and hazardous materials with their pump-out facilities while docked.
Since the Nantucket Boat Basin is owned by Nantucket Island Resorts, there are several different lodging options for you to choose from should you make it an overnight stopover.

While you’re in town, be sure to tour some of the historic lighthouses and nosh on some delicious New England seafood before taking a stroll along one of the beautiful beaches. Take the boat out while you’re in the area to participate in some fishing and catch your own dinner for the evening.
