My husband and I took this sunset cruise as a belated anniversary celebration and it couldn't have been more perfect! The sail was so quiet and the water was calm. Mark, Becca and Dylan made sure all of the passengers were comfortable and felt at home. They interacted with all of the passengers and the narration was funny and informative.... More

We sailed out of the harbor in Newport and across the bay for the sunset cruise. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and highly recommend it. The crew was knowledgeable about local landmarks.

A very professionally run cruise that was also a lot of fun. Champagne, beer,soda and water were available for a toast as the sun dipped below the horizon. The crew were great, even including 3 little girls when they needed to raise the sails. Fun facts of the sights were helpful and questions were answered as we sailed the harbour.... More

We went on the sunset cruise on a gloriously warm sunny evening with a fairly light breeze. The yacht was crewed by three young ladies who made us feel welcome and explained the main sights as we passed. Well laid out tourist yacht with plenty of seating space. Fortunately we enjoyed a fantastic sunset.

My husband and I decided last minute to take a sunset cruise and walked over to Bowen's Wharf and booked a ride on the next boat out. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening sail in Newport. The crew was extremely knowledgeable, mixed great cocktails and made us feel very comfortable. I will definitely go again and tell my friends.

We did the sunset cruise, cloudy night but sunset was still amazing. No wind so it was not a true sail, but the crew made it pleasant and offered some interesting tid bits about the historic buildings along the shore. A great way to end the day and see the coast of Newport.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 80-90 minute afternoon sail in Newport. The crew was extremely knowledgeable, mixed great cocktails and made us feel very comfortable. The Adirondack II is large and provides a smooth, spacious ride while going up to 10 knots. This trip takes off from Bowen's Wharf which is an ideal location. This is a must do!

My husband and I went out the sunset sail and it was so wonderful! The views were absolutely amazing, and you really got to experience the best that Newport has to offer. The crew were all so friendly and energetic, and provided us with great information about all the Newport sites! I would definitely recommend spending one of your nights... More
