Begin your cruise at the port of
WARREN, home to Blount Small Ship Adventures. The first stop will be CUTTYHUNK. Cuttyhunk is a small island off the coast of New Bedford, MA, the last in the chain of the Elizabeth Islands that stretch westward from the elbow of Cape Cod.
At Cuttyhunk, you will dock overnight before heading to NANTUCKET. This little island was once the foremost whaling port in the world. Ship owners and sea captains built elegant mansions that today remain remarkably unchanged. Much of this island’s charm is associated with its cobblestone main street, small lanes, plain Quaker-style homes and handsome houses that date from the whaling days of the early 19th century.
Next is MARTHA’S VINEYARD, with its quaint atmosphere, small villages and beaches – the island’s most obvious recreational asset. Historic remnants of the island’s fishing and whaling heritage remain in the Old Whaling Church in Edgartown and The Vineyard Museum featuring early Indian settlement and farming collections. The main towns of Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs and Edgartown are host to many fine shops and restaurants. Enjoy an optional bus tour of the island with Blount.
