In 2010, the Egan Maritime Institute and the Nantucket Shipwreck & Lifesaving Museum launched, a website that provides both an overview of and detailed information about the unique Nantucket weather. Recognizing that travel to and from an island is often a major production, requiring strategies involving fog, wind, surf and storms, is your one stop, easy-to-use source for information on weather and sea conditions.

Website modules can be rearranged and customized to prioritize your favorites, such as a radar map, tidal currents, moon phases, sunsets and sunrises. Also featuring real-time airport and ferry data, web cams, and social networking outlets, @ACKweather Twitter and Instagram and on Facebook, it is easy to share Nantucket weather and to plan your travel and leisure itineraries. Download the free iPhone app whether on the road or on your way to the beach.

Be sure to follow ACKweather on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for the latest updates on weather, storms, or ask us what is headed our way!
