This was our third cruise. My husband and I enjoyed the first sail, three years ago on the Adirondack II. So each year we have returned to Newport and always make reservations for a sail. The crew is so knowledgeable and friendly. The last sail we had a former captain and a lovely little lady that was in charge while... More

We were lucky in that we had sun and a good wind. The crew were very pleasant and chatty, and the drinks on board reasonably priced. We had a great sail in this beautiful yacht with the crew pointing out places of interest en route.

My husband and I were on the first sail of the season. We took the "dark and stormy" sail and tried out the rum and ginger beer cocktails. I was not so much a fan, but there were other options available. The crew was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. They definitely went out of their way to insure... More

We had a great time on their sunset sail. The crew was very personable, funny and knowledgeable. When it got chilly out on the water at sunset, they were prepared with plenty of blankets for everyone. And the drinks (beer, wine, prosecco, Dark N' Stormy's) were reasonably priced. Highly recommended!

This was my first time aboard the Adirondack for a Sunset Sail. Complimentary champagne, candies and fun exciting staff! I recommend this as a date night, family excursion or before dinner cocktail cruise. It is a delightful start to any evening. Thanks Adirondack Staff :) -MD Newport RI

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!
