There is no nicer or more economical way to visit Nantucket than by mooring in the harbor. The mooring field is spacious and well organized. The view of the wharves and mega-yachts is magnificent, especially at night. My arrival was aided by very friendly and helpful Nantucket Moorings staff.
My only criticism is that the shower facilities are deplorable. Besides being very worn they were the filthiest I’ve encountered in my years of cruising. The second evening that I showered there I made sure to bring my flip-flops. For $60 a night we cruisers deserve better facilities. I hope that there is renovation and a new cleaning staff before my next visit.
