The Life Savers on Nantucket were a vital part of the United States Life-Saving Service during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. They were highly skilled individuals stationed along the perilous coastline to rescue sailors and passengers from shipwrecks. With their expertise, bravery, and specialized surfboats, they risked their lives to navigate treacherous waters, saving countless lives and reducing maritime disasters along the Nantucket coast. Their heroic efforts and dedication to maritime safety left an indelible mark on the history of Nantucket and continue to be honored through the legacy of the United States Coast Guard.

The 2023 Nantucket Santa, The Life Saver Nantucket Santa, embodies the bravery of the Life Savers on Nantucket depicting Santa on the lookout for those who many need rescuing… with a light in one hand to cast aside the shadows from the Grey Lady fog and a life saver and rope in the other, the nautical themed Santa is seen sitting within a woven Nantucket basket adorned with a solitary scallop shell.
