Getting to Nantucket Boat Basin
Nantucket Boat Basin Directions
To get to Nantucket Boat Basin from the west, you'll pass along the Cross Rip Channel, which lies between Cross Rip Shoal and Horseshoe Shoal. It's best to stay within the channel markers during this part of your journey. As you enter Nantucket Harbor, you'll pass Tuckermuck Shoal on your starboard side.
You'll also see a red and white "NB" bouy. Proceed down the channel with Brant Point Lighthouse to your starboard side. Please observe the "No Wake" buoys near Brant Point Lighthouse. Nantucket Boat Basin will be on the west side of the harbor. For further information, please check the current edition of the Embassy Cruising Guide by Maptech or the Waterway Guide.
