Charter Boat Rentals Information:
American Beauty II is U.S. Coast Guard approved to hold up to 33 passengers*. We do private charters for weddings, bachelor and bachelorette parties, Sag Harbor Grucci Brothers fireworks, school class reunions and group reunions, picnics, camp trips, photo sessions, fundraisers and much more. Because it is private, bring your food, and beverages to create fond memories of your special occasion!

Private charters are available 7 days a week. Charters take precedence over the Sunset Cruises and the 90 minute Nature Cruises. However, you must make a reservation to hold the time and date.
Start and Stop Times:
In the case of a departure time delayed by the guests chartering the boat, the boat still returns as scheduled in the charter contract. If extra time is needed because of the delayed departure, it may be possible to extend the cruise at regular rates. This is at Captain Don’s discretion because he must consider schedule, crew availability, etc.
* boat capacity may be less than 33 guests durning COVID pandemic safety rules.
Private Charter COVID-19 Update:
The following rules are for private charters only. Different rules apply for open boat cruises.
Masks are required upon boarding and deboarding.: Once the boat is away from the dock and moving (and the air is flowing) you do not have to wear masks as long as you socially distance from Captain Don and the first mate. If you need to discuss anything with them, please put the mask back on. As we return and approach Long Wharf, please put your masks back on until you leave the dock. For the most part you will have the boat to yourselves, but social distancing respect for the captain and crew is required by law and appreciated.
Temperature screening: All passengers will have their temperature taken with a touchless forehead thermometer before boarding the boat.
Please refer to our COVID-19 Update page for more details.
