If you are looking for a charter that provides reliable services and fun-filled excursions on the island, Endeavor Sailing is among the top recommendations.

Captain Jim is in charge of it. He ensures your safety at sea and provides invaluable insights about Nantucket Sound. He and his team are deeply knowledgeable about the Nantucket Sound and passionate about creating beautiful memories for their passengers.
According to Jim, being Captain is a dream come true. He grew up in Fairhaven, Massachusetts, across the bridge from the Old Whaling Port of New Bedford. His contact with the sea sparked a curiosity about the sea and a desire to own a boat someday and earn a living at sea. He would often visit the New Bedford Whaling Museum to research the maritime history and culture of areas around Massacheutees. Years later, he built Endeavor and is living out his dream, whereby his acquired knowledge comes in handy.
He has over four decades of experience sailing the Nantucket waters and is licensed by the United States Coast Guard. He runs Endeavor alongside his wife, Sue Genther, and several crew members.
