Welcome to Shearwater Excursions and the Shearwater Family. Founded in 1999, we are a local family-run eco tour company dedicated to providing unique tours to individuals and families of all age groups. From small kids to grandparents, we have trips that cater to your needs and taste for adventure. Whether you take a short, leisurely tour around Nantucket Harbor, or a longer adventure exploring the realm of the great Whales offshore, we promise you an exceptional experience.
Our customers frequently ask what the meaning is behind our name. The business is named after Captain Blair’s favorite bird, the Shearwater. Shearwaters are routinely spotted on our offshore Whale Watches, the flagship excursion of our company.
If you don’t see a tour that fits your needs, we can customize one just for you. Feel free to call us to set up your ideal trip!
We look forward to meeting you and having you onboard one of our Excursions.
