We took the "Sunset cruise" on a warm summer evening, and it could not have been better. Good wind at the start made for a brisk early part of the sail, and then a more relaxed pace when the wind dropped as sunset approached. We were fortunate top sit near the helm so we could hear and speak with "Captain... More

This was our first time sailing on the Madeleine. We had a great time. It was a very relaxing and smooth afternoon sail. The crew and captain were great. Highly recommend!

We loved our ride on the Schooner Madeleine. The positives definitely were the crew and the view. The negatives were the lack of comfort, my elderly mom was with us and the seating was not ideal for someone that has a hard time getting around.

On June 23, my two best friends and I sailed the Madeleine. It was my friends birthday and we decided to take her somewhere she has never been or done. We decided to do a sail cruise in Newport, RI. I called the Schooner Madeleine and I spoke with Kim she was such a delight to work with. She gave... More

What a way to celebrate any special occasion - for us it was our anniversary (26th) and the crew certainly made it special -- as I was allowed to raise a sail, to steer the sailboat and all while being generously served champagne. We've taken many boating excursions in our marriage, but this one in Newport really stands out -... More

My husband and I had a really nice time on this sailboat. Iced tea and water was passed around and the crew was really friendly and pointed out some interesting sights along the way. I thought they would have asked for some volunteers to help raise the sails as that would have been nice but they didn't, maybe they had... More

Our friends from Middletown suggested taking the Madeleine as the best way to see Fort Adams and experience a quiet sail in the harbor. We were not disappointed. If you are looking for a peaceful 90 minute sailing experience- this is it. This is not a 'tour' so there isn't a great deal of narration as you go ... the... More

We had a great time sailing on the Madeleine. Although it was June it was a chilly day to begin with and was freezing on the boat-the boat does have blankets but they weren't enough to keep me warm. Just keep that in mind for future voyages. I would definitely have enjoyed it more. Complimentary beverages like water and iced... More

The Madeleine and her crew were brilliant and it was a most pleasant way to spend an afternoon. Whether you have sailing experience or not it a chilled out way to see Newport from the water and you are not expected to do anything other than enjoy.
