Our spacious 80' pilot schooner can take as many as 57 guests sailing on Narragansett Bay. During the summer months we go out 5 times daily, starting at 11 AM, for 1.5 hour sails. Our boat is Coast Guard certified and equipped with 2 rest rooms. Sit back, relax and enjoy the quiet beauty of the coastal scenery while the wind fills the sails.

Beautiful day sailing around Newport, great crew, very reasonably priced beverages, just be sure to book ahead of time, they sell out! We were in Newport for the day and didn't plan any activities in advance, and then saw all the boats and realized we wanted to take a sail boat tour. The Adirondack kiosk was the first one we...

We decided to go on a Friday on July and avoid the sure to hit Saturday crowd. The crew was very friendly and attentive and took time to talk with us during the trip. With a capacity of 60 and 20 on this Friday 3 pm sail, I am sure they had more time than usual!. We were pleased to... More

Our first sail on the Adirondack II was for the 4th of July fireworks. The captain and his crew were all nice, and fun to spend a bit of time with. They served some snacks and drinks. Since we didn't put the sails up or go very far, we decided to go back two days later for an afternoon sail.... More

Family of three that included two teens took the Classic Afternoon Schooner Sail cruise on Saturday afternoon. The parking lot they recommended was full but we secured parking along the street with a meter for 3 hours which was just enough time for our cruise. A friendly crew and great weather made for a nice cruise. It was amazing to... More

Beautiful boat and scenery however the captain spent majority of the time on his cell phone, very unsettling to people who don't boat very often. Try a different company as there are many in the same area

The Adirondack II is a wonderful sailing experience that our entire group (four adults and two young men of 16 & 18) enjoyed tremendously. The crew, who were very pleasant and informative, did a great job of showing us around Newport and it's amazing properties that dot the shoreline. The boat is impeccably clean and comfortable, with lots of room... More

It was first time my mother and I did something like this! There was a little bit of an overcast, a little cloudy, but there was a little bit of a sunset. We didn't get to see the breathtaking pink, purple, and orange sunset, but it was still a memorable experience! We would definitely attempt again! Being out in the... More

This was a great way to see Narragansett Bay and learn about some of the history and local stories. We had perfect temps with sun and light wind that did allow a real sail with the engine off. The ship is graceful and beautifully maintained. The crew is extremely hospitable with warm and genuine interaction. My daughter and I had... More
