The Surfboat Program is offered through the Egan Maritime Institute.
Summer Maritime Exploration Program
This summer, follow in the footsteps of those heroic islanders who risked their lives braving frigid waters and howling winds to save shipwrecked mariners. Sailors will work together aboard a restored Monomoy Surfboat, learning traditional maritime skills. Together they will explore in and around Nantucket harbor, investigate local marine habitats, visit historical sites, and meet individuals who continue to ply its waters. On the last day, students may also get a chance to row aboard an authentic reproduction of a whaleboat and learn what it was like to be a real whaler.
This program is for children ages 10 -13 years old and space will be limited to 8 participants per session.
