We did a 10:30 morning sail on an overcast day but truly enjoyed the Aquidneck. The crew was informative and gracious. Captain John was truly an expert sailor. There were blankets provided by the crew. A great experience!

Adults are $36. I would book ahead of time either on line or call them. Trips do sell out especially on busy summer weekends.
