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

Took the sailing trip and it was a wonderful experience. The tour lasts about 1 hour and 1/2. The crew was very nice and friendly. They provide water and tea. It is a nice way to see Newport. 100% recommended.

Great 90 minute sail. We had a good wind when we went out which made the sailing even better than we had expected. The crew ( Mike, Derek and Isaac) was pleasant and they easily engaged with everyone on board.

We love new port and all it has to offer. We've done an excursion on the Rum runner, the Madelaine and the Adirondack. All cruise the same harbor but by far the Adirondack is a superior experience. She is a beautiful ship in impeccable condition and the seating and accommodations much more comfortable then her rivals. The crew Isaac, Sea... More

What a wonderful day of sailing on the Madeline out of Newport, RI. The crew was great and it was a very relaxing day and great sights. There were not many people the day we went - they have 3 or 4 trips a day - this was on a week day - the hour and 1/2 goes by very... More

I had an excellent time taking the 90 minute harbor tour on the Adirondack II. The crew was very attentive to our requests and knowledgeable about the historic landmarks. Alot of fun and a great way to enjoy a afternoon on the water. A Newport must do.

Great crew, very friendly and enthusiastic. Nice calm sail to see a spectacular sunset on the bay. Refreshments available to purchase for a decent price, no gouging here ..... Highly recommend!!

They did a great job sailing the boat, firendly and comedic staff on board, however, I personally got unexpectedly nervous the whole time that we were going to flip over. The boat leans a lot more then I expected to one side so I had a hard time enjoying the sites fearing was going to go overboard. I grew up... More

My husband and I went on the sunset cruise and had a wonderful time. The crew was fantastic. They gave an informative history of the bay like they were conversing with you, not just rattling out facts. The other passengers were great. We were "friends" for the hour and 1/2. Even though it was not a "spectacular" sunset (out of... More
