Nantucket Tug Company hits the high seas for cocktail hour this summer.

While there’s certainly no shortage of idyllic places to enjoy drinks and light bites on Nantucket, few get away from it all quite like the newly launched Nantucket Tug Company. Dreamt up by Slip 14’s Jonas Baker and Way Point Marine Service’s Captain Tim Feeney, Nantucket Tug Company is a fully-licensed, one-of-kind charter boat offering private luncheons and sunset tours around Nantucket Harbor. Climbing aboard their classic Crosby tugboat named Gertrude, Nantucket Tug Company’s guests enjoy a leisurely, two-hour tour of the harbor while enjoying beers from Cisco, sparkling wine from Champy, local oysters and charcuterie. With only two sailings each day—one for lunch and one for sunset—for up to six guests, this tug boat tour might be your best bet for beating the crowds come the high season.
