An exciting new activity awaits visitors to the Nantucket shoreline thanks to the ingenuity of Captain Josh: the Nantucket Critter Cruise. Spend an entertaining hour with them aboard the Monomoy as you observe Captain Josh bringing in his fish traps and lobster tools and give the kids a chance to cast a line of their own. Seeing what kinds of animals the team captures is always a thrill. The captured species are displayed in a “touch tank” where visitors can observe them up close and even handle them.
No need to stress about poor weather or unpredictable waves on the Critter Cruise because it only lasts an hour and they remain in the harbor the entire time. All children must be attended by an adult, and fishing poles and bait will be supplied. The Coast Guard inspects the vessel yearly, and the captain and personnel must pass rigorous safety exams. All travelers have access to personal floatation devices.
Sunscreen, a blanket, a camera, and any food and drink you might want are all good things to have on hand before setting a voyage. Ample ice and cooler space are available. We’re going on the Nantucket Critter Cruise, and it’s going to be a blast!
