About Cape Ann Cruises
Celebrate love aboard the iconic WEJACK, a 46-passenger classic mahogany yacht, that is an authentic part of Gloucester’s fishing heritage. Long regarded as an exquisitely built wooden boat, WEJACK is conveniently located in historic downtown Gloucester, America’s oldest seaport. Less than 40 miles from Boston, and commuter rail accessible, Gloucester is the perfect location for any celebration! Contact us today, the Captain and our onboard certified wedding coordinator are ready to make your event a memorable one!
Capacity: We specialize in intimate wedding celebrations with up to 46 guests, which would be ideal for more standing room/cocktail spacing for a harbor cruise with indoor and outdoor seating as well. We will make sure to keep things simple and manage details so you can enjoy your wedding day worry-free.
Pricing: Cruise prices start at $700 per hour for the yacht, and you can anticipate a catering/drink range of $30-$120 per person depending on your food and drink preferences. Cake and flowers would be add-ons if you, and we work directly with exceptional local vendors.
Cruise Type: Celebrate your love with a scenic cruise around Historic Gloucester Harbor with views of beaches, lighthouses, mansions, castles, and the Gloucester fishing fleet. If you desire a cruise with other destinations in mind that require more time aboard, that would be an option too, and we could discuss trip destinations and activities.

With decades of experience, Wejack’s Captain and crew have organized, planned, and carried out a multitude of weddings. Should your wedding require food and beverage service, our wedding planner will be able to customize any of our menus to fit your needs! We look forward to working with you to help plan your special day.
Weather Planning: The yacht has some sheltered space for inclement weather, or weather can be handled through an inside venue space on land. Typically, the captain makes the call regarding the boat operations and inclement weather and will discuss those decisions directly with you.
Drink options: If you want to split drinks apart from the food/drink package, we have other drink package options to meet your needs below. A memorable signature cocktail can be a fun way to celebrate in addition to the drink menu options. Please let us know if you have any special drink requests well in advance of your date so we can try to accommodate sourcing.
