Duration: 8 hours
Manhattan hotel pickup at 9am by private car, take off by helicopter to Nantucket (approx. 90 mins.) You will enjoy a drive through Nantucket, sightseeing, museums, Nantucket Vineyards and Distillery and then a trip to Cisco Beach, helicopter ride and car back to Manhattan.
Nantucket, a tiny isolated island off Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The tour will take you on a scenic drive around the historic island of dune-backed beaches, wharves, and cobblestoned streets of the Town of Nantucket. The first stop will be to the town’s Whaling Museum which recounts the island’s role as a 19th century whaling hub. The museum consists of (9) galleries, over 1,000 works of art, artifacts & treasures, a 46’ Sperm Whale skeleton, massive Fresnel lens and restored 1847 candle factory.
A few minutes away will be a trip to the Maria Mitchell Aquarium in Nantucket Downtown Historic District. The Maria Mitchell Association operates the Vestal St. Observatory, the Loines Observatory, The Natural Science Museum, the Maria Mitchell Aquarium, and preserves the historic birthplace of Maria Mitchell.
The following will be a trip to the Nantucket Vineyards and Cisco Distillery for a Private Tour and Tasting. Due to the unpredictable Nantucket weather the grapes are sourced from Washington State and Sonoma; fermentation and aging takes place on the Cisco Brewers property. They create an array of red and white wine, from island inspired to international classic favorites, as well as hard cider and sangria specials.
Finally, a trip to Cisco Beach if desired a gourmet picnic lunch can be added or lunch earlier after the attractions.
