If your group exceeds 9 guests, we require that your privately charter Sightsailer. Otherwise, your group can start to overwhelm other guests on board who are not part of your group. If your group exceeds 24, we require that you charter Aquidneck. Other than having the boat to yourselves, a Private Charter also allows you to arrange to have food and drink on board, listen to your own music, etc.
After you determine which boat fits your group, look at that boat's departure schedule in the Schedules & Rates section and choose one of the boat's scheduled departures as your private charter departure time.
Two hour Private Charters aboard Starlight may be booked online.

*Please note that boat capacity numbers are determined by the Coast Guard and cannot be exceeded under any circumstance. The Coast Guard considers every human being on the boat to be a person regardless of age, so an infant counts the same as an adult in the total guest count.
