Ardelle is available for charter for many different types of trips outside of our regular two-hour cruises around Gloucester Harbor. We have found that for smaller groups, a longer trip is a very special experience so we offer the Ardelle for charter for up to 20 passengers for whole day trips.

If weather allows these trips often include circumnavigating Cape Ann, heading down to some other coastal community for a visit, or an offshore sail for a whale watch. We provide coffee and donuts and recommend the charterer bring a picnic lunch for their guests. You can provide your guests with soft drinks, pay for an open bar or have your guests buy drinks from the boat. Sorry, because of our liquor license no alcohol can be brought aboard.

Booking a Charter

Specialty Charters are available throughout our sailing season from May-October, based on availability. All charter bookings are handled on a first come, first served basis. We require a deposit of half of your charter price to reserve your charter. The balance owed is due at the conclusion of your sail. Thirty-day cancellation notice is required for deposit refunds.

Our charters typically depart from and return to Maritime Gloucester, 23 Harbor Loop, Gloucester, MA. If you would like to arrange a charter from an alternate location, please give us a call.

All specialty charters include the exclusive use of the vessel and the services of our Captain, crew and bartenders.
