My sister and i had reservations today for the 2:30 sailing, we were originally told plenty of room when we booked just yesterday. Took off a half day of work, drove an hour to get there, excited and ready to go, only to go to the window and be told "sorry, we overbooked. There is a private party booked so... More

This charter company is first class. The owner and captain really knows the area and his boat well. In fact he built the boat. You can help sail if you wish. He was great with the children who wanted to take a turn at the helm. We went on the sunset cruise which was delightful on a hot night. .... More

We live in Newburyport and sailing with the 9th wave is the first thing we do with our guests when they come to visit. The captain and crew are always pleasant always helpful and considerate. They sail down the Merrimac River out of the mouth and into the ocean. It is never rocky and bumpy and sea sickness has never... More

We have taken multiple charters with 9th Wave and really enjoy getting out on the water with family or friends since they make it easy. The boat is in great shape and the catamaran design makes it a unique experience. It's much cheaper than owning a big sailboat and you have a staff to take care of the hard work... More

This is our third sail with 9th wave and the first that the wind prevailed to give us a great sail! Sitting in the nets is a must but beware of rogue waves, you may get damp! Bar on board is perfect for an afternoon or evening beverage but be sure to bring along some snacks and non alcoholic drinks... More

This is my 3rd time in Newburyport, MA and my second trip aboard the 9th Wave Catamaran. I always enjoy this 2 1/2 hour ride especially on a nice sunny day. The captain and mate are very nice and they also serve some drinks on board and some snacks to be purchased. It is so relaxing laying on the net... More

We booked this trip for an adventure while on our girls weekend. We had a wonderful time. The price was excellent and the staff were very good. I would recommend this as an excursion for all ages.
