What an amazing sail boat. The crew was super friendly. The captain let my husband sail for a short while(he was in heaven). Thanks again for a great relaxing ride, we will be back next year!

So glad we could be part of your anniversary weekend! We love letting our guests steer the boat, under the guidance of our captain. Our season is over for this year and the boat is headed back to Albany. But we hope you will join us again next summer. We're in Newport from Mother's Day till Columbus Day. More

Even though we were on a large cruise ship when we visited Newport, taking a spin around the Narragansett Bay on a late morning "Mimosa" sail was an absolute highlight. The boat was immaculate and the crew was delightful; they even let my 5-yr-old granddaughter take the helm!

I am so glad you and your family had a good time on our boat. We love letting our guests steer the boat, because the smiles on their faces just won't go away. And that seems particularly true for the children! Hope if you're back in Newport, you'll sail with us again. More

I took the Sept. 7 PM 1.5 hour cruise aboard the adiroudack II, out of Newport RI. This was an experience like no other, there was a 12-14knot wind, and with the sails up, we were moving along at 13-15 knots, with the water you could reach out and touch. The seasoned crew knew exactly how th handle the schooner.... More

Lovely Sunday morning sail, the all "gal" crew were amazing! Although it was a cloudy day, we still saw a lot and although we have been to Newport many times, this was the first time seeing some of the sights from the water. Fun for all ages!

Our morning mimosa sails are certainly a popular choice. And we are really pleased to have such capable women as captains and crew. In fact, although Rachael was the captain in charge, the two female crew are also captains! Thanks so much for your review, and hope we see you next season in Newport on the Adirondack II. More

My husband and I booked tickets online ahead of time for the Friday night sunset cruise. We left at 630 and sailed until about 8. The crew was really nice and gave an overview of the history of the sights we passed. Beautiful views of the sunset. Crew was great. They had blankets and wine/beer for purchase (only a few... More

Had a wonderful morning cruise with the Adirondack II. The all female crew were friendly, knowledgeable and quick with the sails. Interesting tidbits about the sights along the way. Would highly recommend it. Took an infant and toddler with me and they were very accommodating.

We had a great time. The views were beautiful and the staff was friendly. Make sure you hold on tight because it gets moving once the sails pick up wind. Also, try to board first because it was hard to find a spot to sit next to my husband after everyone boarded. There aren't a lot of comfortable places to... More

Hi, Am so glad you enjoyed a sail on our boat, but I am a little confused. Your review says you sailed on the Adirondack in New York City. But it's posted to the Adirondack II in Newport. Did you sail with us? Please advise, thanks! More

My fiancé and I went on the Adirondack yesterday for the first time. We were a little skeptical because of the price ($40.00) but it was worth every penny. We went on the 5 o'clock boat because the sunset one was sold out, but it was still a great experience. The boat was on time and the crew was exceptional.... More

We were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary.....we had a perfect evening. The crew was very efficient and professional. The captain was very friendly and knowledgeable. The weather was perfect. We brought light jackets with us, but there were blankets available on board if you felt chilly. All in all a peaceful, relaxing, scenic tour of our beautiful bay.
