Here's the Line on Kids' Fishing at The Cottages

Fishing is so much fun on Nantucket for young anglers. We have everything your kids need for a great fishing experience.
  • Rods, reels, nets and tackle boxes are available on a first come, first served basis for daily use. A parent's signature is required for your child to use the equipment. There is no charge unless the equipment is not returned on the same day. Equipment is only available to guests staying at The Cottages.
  • We have designated special locations on Swain's Wharf and Straight Wharf which are conducive for kids to fish.
  • Kids under 12 cannot be left unattended on the docks while fishing. Check daily for location updates on the best spots to catch fish.
