My sister had never been sailing before. It was very enjoyable..she got to help hoist the sails. A good wind...a little on the cholly side but I'm so glad we went.

This is the third time aboard Adirondack II West for my wife and me...twice in Key West, Florida, where she goes for the winter. All three have been excellent. The crew is always cheerful, knowledgeable and helpful. The boat itself is always in superb condition and handled expertly. She has the reputation as the fastest boat in the harbor...both Newport...

This was a great trip with a great crew. We took the sunset cruise and we were not disappointed at all. The crew was entertaining and the views were unbelievably beautiful. Would definitely recommend this attraction if staying in Newport. For the price you can't beat it!

We had a wonderful time on the Adirondack II. A lot of interesting information, a great group of people, and a wonderful sail. They provided beer, wine, and one or two mixed drinks and blankets for the chill. This tour was definitely worth the money, and was far preferable to a motorized tour, because it was peaceful and everyone could... More

A cruise around the lower Narragansett Bay presents many interesting feature: Hammersmith Farm, where Jackie Bouvier grew up, a house build on an rock by one of the Whartons, Castle Hill and the lighthouse, a magnificent view of both bridges, and various and sundry aspects of boating life. Our cruise yesterday was in perfect weather, but still enough wind and... More

My wife and I wrapped up a week in New England with a visit to Newport and a sunset cruise on the Adirondack II. What a great decision and the perfect exclamation point to a great vacation. One of the more affordable activities in this area, the Adirondack II provides an appetizer to the sailing culture and beautiful scenery of... More

We took the sunset sail which included beer, wine and soda for around 37$ each. The boat was nice even though it was full it felt open. Crew was super attentive and friendly. I would like to go again!

We took my 95-year old uncle and cousin, and 60 year old us. There were only 6 other "guests" and 3 crew so it was almost like a private cruise. The crew were great at helping my frail uncle safely onto the boat. They even let him steer the boat for a few minutes after we cleared the harbor; though... More
