Frequently asked questions

Most frequent questions and answers

Follow your GPS instructions to 24 Harbor Loop in Gloucester Massachusetts. Find a place to park. once you have parked your car, please call our Boat phone at 207–930–5873 and let us know that you are on your way. It is a good idea to be parked and on your way down to the launch 15 minutes prior to your scheduled departure time. Then proceed to the Harbormaster’s office and go down the ramp to the water. Look for a white open boat about 30 feet long named the Gloucesterman. if the boat is not there then that means it is probably out doing a run and will return shortly. Wait patiently and they will be there. Once aboard the launch, tell the driver that you are headed to Artemis. We will pay the cost of the launch service but it is always nice to leave a couple of dollars for the launch captain

You are welcome to bring snacks and libations! We prefer that you steer clear of red wine, dark berries, and greasy sauces/items as these will stain our canvas cushions. Daysails can be sunny, so sunscreen (not the spray kind please! It can stain the canvas)and a hat are good ideas.Also, feel free to bring your favorite musical playlists as we have wireless speakers aboard.

Yes! Dog friendly and “mellow”dogs are welcome to sail with us. We do ask that you let us know if you will be bringing a dog along with you, as we have a dog of our own, and like to make sure proper introductions happen

Yes, Artemis Sailing Charters offers sail repair services for sails of all types and sizes. The company's skilled technicians use state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to repair and maintain sails to the highest standards.

The weather in New England changes regularly and quickly, so it’s always a good idea to bring layers. We find a windbreaker to be a key element of comfort on the water!

Sorry, There is no smoking allowed on board the boat.

Unlikely, we do our best to stay in protected waters, but if you know that you get seasick with the mere thought of being on the water, please take care of yourself and your comfort as you see fit. We do not offer dramamine or any other medications aboard the boat

Yes. We have a nice clean ‘head’ on board the boat for our guests use, and also recommend that all of our guests use the public facilities on the dock before boarding as we have a relatively small holding tank!
