Want to try kayaking but aren’t sure where to start? Follow one of MMA’s instructors and explore the island from the water! We will teach participants basic kayaking strokes and safety procedures, explore the creeks near harbor flats, and share naturalist information about the local habitat and creatures we may see along the way. Kayaks and life jackets provided.

This program is appropriate for strong swimmers ages 8 and up. All children must be accompanied by an adult and all participants must register. The program will meet at Sea Nantucket: 76 Washington St. Limited parking is available towards the end of the Washington St. Extension or in the town lot on Washington St. In the case of inclement weather, programs will be cancelled and participants will be notified.

Private tours available on Thursdays, 9:30 am – 11 am. If you wish to make one of these sessions a private experience for your family, you must register for all eight spaces. Otherwise, contact mzegans@mariamitchell.org to reserve a Thursday tour. Private programs have limited availability and will be accepted on a first-come-first-serve basis.
