Nantucket Harbor Launch is a water taxi service.
We take people to and from their boats out in the harbor. But all are welcome to ride along with us.
We call it the Tag-a-long. You don't have to have a boat to see Nantucket from the water! It’s not really a tour - but it is scenic and fun. You go where we go. Usually 20ish minutes but longer if you’d like.
Buy a ticket on line or show up and buy one from the launch driver. You don’t have to book a reservation. We run nonstop all day long from 7AM -Midnite. Present email confirmation to the driver if you buy online. Tips are always appreciated. You are on an island. You should see it from the water!
The docks for the Nantucket Harbor Launch are located in the heart of town behind the Straight Wharf Restaurant and near the Hy-line ferry. Our Crosby 26 launches service the Nantucket mooring field and the general anchorage. We take people to and from their boats out in the harbor. But all are welcome to ride along with us. We call it the Tag-a-long! Come get out on the water. During the heart of the summer season we operate continuously from 7AM til midnight seven days a week - weather permitting, of course.
