Welcome to the Newburyport BluesCruise. We want your special time with us to be memorable. In order to help you we have listed some frequently asked questions to help you plan your cruise.
When should we arrive?
It’s best to arrive with ample time to park and get to the boat. Public parking is available at the municipal parking lot nearby. Usually it’s best to give at least 30 minutes before the time of the event.
What should we wear?
It’s always best to check the weather forecast in advance but typically comfortable flat shoes or sneakers are important and a sweater or light jacket if it’s cool, typically in early summer or after Labor Day.
Does our cruise stay on the river ?
Typically our public and private charters will cruise on the river and to the mouth of the Merrimack River. If conditions are just right and the ocean is completely calm we can cruise out beyond the mouth of the river and the jetties. For private charters we can plan our charters to sail onto the open ocean upon request.
Can we bring food aboard?
You can bring a sandwich or snacks aboard. For our public live music cruises we have chips and dip available. Catering is available for our private charters.
Can we bring alcohol aboard?
It is against the law to bring your own alcoholic beverages aboard. You may purchase beer, wine and cocktails upon boarding and up to the end of the cruise.
Can we book live music for our private charter?
We are able to provide some of the best live music performers in the New England who can provide virtually any song selection you might want including jazz, blues, rock, reggae and country.
If it rains what’s the rescheduling policy?
If the weather is too uncomfortable or deemed unsafe for the navigation of our vessel, we will provide a make-up date.
Thank you for being part of our Newburyport BluesCruise. We look forward to having you aboard!
