I did the Sails and Ales on the Adirondack II in late August and loved it. They did samples of delicious Foolproof beer as we sailed around the bay. Can't beat the prices on the beer either. The boat wasn't too crowded and the crew was very nice and low key. It didn't hurt that the weather was perfect.

If you haven't sailed before you don't realize how slow it is so if you're expecting the high seas on these tours opt for a much longer one. On our hour and a half "Dark and Stormy" we barely made it to the edge of the bay before turning around. With that said it was still quite enjoyable and the... More

Such a fun excursion with the family! Very amiable and skilled crew. We had a lovely tour of Newport in the late afternoon. I would highly recommend it. Make sure you make your reservations early during the busy season.

We had one of the best experiences touring Newport by water this past week. Our first of two sails on the Adirondack was on the sunset sail. Yes, the wind was perfect for a fast, full-sail experience; the experience was a first for us watching the beautiful colors painting the sky and providing a unique backdrop for Newport at sunset....

We had a smooth relaxing ride, the sunset cruise is highly recommended. Our captain was confident and informative. Drinks were served, and the sunset view was lovely. A great night was had by all. If you're looking to check out how a sailboat works, sit by the captain.

My husband and I so enjoyed the sunset cruise we took on a gorgeous Sunday night. So relaxing with a glass of proseco, a cool breeze and a very friendly and engaging crew on board...we learned so much about the many places of interest we passed along the way on the gorgeous Narraganset. The guide we had was wonderfully informative... More

Took an afternoon sailing cruise on this boat. It always helps that the day was bright with just the right amount of wind to make the trip worthwhile. The staff on the boat was excellent and informative making the trip even more enjoyable. Have been coming to Newport for many years and the Adirondack ii is always a highlight of... More

This was so easy to book - with live people on the phone. And it was easy to find the ticket kiosk at the Wharf. Great, easy-going staff on the boat. They handled the excursion flawlessly! The sailing was so smooth i could have stayed longer. We enjoyed a most beautiful sunset!! ....and enjoyed the beverages, too.

My husband, daughter and I booked a sail on Adirondack II last minute. The day was gloriously and we were excited that we could make a reservation online. Their website was informative and gave out important information like parking and landmarks to look for to get to the correct marina. We got boarding passes and had time for a leisurely... More
