We offer hourly, half day, full day or customized cruising packages for you and your significant other, your family, or your small corporate group.  You may want to experience cruising the Merrimack River, the Annisquam River, or traveling along the Shoreline, as well as visiting harbors such as Rockport, Gloucester, Ipswich, Hampton, Portsmouth, Little Harbor (Wentworth by the Sea), or the Isle of Shoals.  If a day at the beach by boat is what interests your group, there are several magnificent beaches that are available.   If you have a desire to modify our daily cruise offerings, we will try to accommodate your personalized request.   When you book with Compass Rose Yacht Charters, LLC, you need not concern yourself with anything more than your arrival.   We will do everything possible to make your day, “A Day to Remember”.  

If you have young children, it is recommended that you bring your own life preservers to fit them.   We do have child life preservers available.

All you need to bring is food and drink for your party for the day, plus personal items such as hats, sunglasses, sunscreen, jackets or windbreakers, rain gear (if rain or showers are in the marine forecast), and soft soled, non marking white soled boat shoes (sneakers are acceptable), and beach towels.   You should plan for plenty of water and perhaps an extra sandwich or two, since being out on the water works up and appetite.   We will have extra water and sodas onboard, at no charge, should you not bring sufficient servings.

For those prone to seasickness, we suggest checking out the many over-the-counter   seasickness remedies.  Bonine, Dramamine, seasickness patches or accu-pressure wristbands, to mention a few, will help to make your day more enjoyable.

Note: Bonine and Dramamine should be taken before you get onboard – please read the recommended instructions prior to taking this medication.
