Honoring the past. Inspiring the future.

Egan Maritime Institute is a non-profit organization celebrating the rich maritime history of Nantucket Island. Nantucket native Albert F. "Bud" Egan Jr. and his wife Dorothy H. Egan created a foundation in 1989 to showcase the island’s seafaring heritage. EMI has since grown to include the Nantucket Shipwreck & Lifesaving Museum, ACKweather, Mill Hill Press and Sea of Opportunities, an education program in Nantucket's public and private schools.
