Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge Natural History Tours

Private Tours

Join our expert guides on this over-sand vehicle beach tour and learn about the fascinating flora and fauna at Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge. Experience beautiful and unique habitats including salt marshes, the barrier beach system, and the ocean. These habitats are home to a variety of bird species—including ospreys, northern harriers, American oystercatchers, piping plovers, and terns. And keep an eye out for seals! Tours last approximately two hours, but the memories will last a lifetime.


Currently we have Sunset Tours available departing the gatehouse at 6PM and returning by 8:30 PM, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. This private tour is $350, and will take place in a Jeep, seating a maximum of four guests. Tours depart from the Wauwinet Gatehouse, 111 Wauwinet Road, Nantucket. Parking is available on street side only. (Transportation to the gatehouse is the responsibility of the group).
