Sail with Experience
The Endeavor, a United States Coast Guard certified vessel, is the longest operating sailing charter on Nantucket. Captain James Genthner, licensed by the United States Coast Guard, has over 30 years experience sailing the pristine waters of Nantucket. He can acquaint you with Nantucket's maritime history and sights along the waterfront.
Captain Jim offers regular daily sailing cruises around the waters of Nantucket Island and is also available for private charters. Sailing excursions are offered from May through October.
Novice and experienced sailors of all ages can help the crew set sail or simply relax and enjoy the ride. Guests are welcome to bring aboard refreshments. Captain Jim built Endeavor, and if you wish, he will share his knowledge of traditional boat building. Captain Jim and Sue Genthner live on Nantucket year-round with their children Lisa and James.
Established in 1982, Endeavor has been featured in The New York Times Sophisticated Traveler, National Geographic Traveler, The Miami Herald, and on The Today Show, Chronicle, and The Learning Channel's Romantic Escapes.
Endeavor is docked at Slip # 1015 on Straight Wharf, just a short walk from all in-town Nantucket accommodations, shuttle bus stops, and ferries.
