Water Sports

Nothing beats spending the day on the water during a sunny Nantucket day. Whether you choose fun, competitive water sports with friends or decide to go for a leisurely swim in the ocean, the water has a way to revitalize and re-energize you. Paddle boarding, kayaking, surfing, snorkeling, and more are all available on Nantucket!


Next Level Water Sports:

We are excited to announce a new service offering this 2016 Summer Season through our partnership with Next Level Watersports.  Beginning May 2016, Next Level Watersports will use the Harborview Nantucket as its home base from which to offer premium kiteboarding & wake boarding instruction.  Men, women, and students young and old can learn the thrill of cruising across the water effortlessly behind the pull of a kite or get up for the first time wake boarding behind a boat on Nantucket Harbor.  Founded by Jon Beery of Darien, CT and Jake Hoefler of Hampstead, NH, Next Level Watersports is proud to maintain a staff of professional instructors with years of coaching experience.  Come check out Next Level Watersports so you or your kids can learn the basics of getting up for your first time on a board all the way to riding a hydrofoil floating silently above the water.  It is guaranteed to be an experience the family will never forget!
