About Sightsailing of Newport
Sightsailing of Newport offers daily sailing cruises, tours and private sailing charters in Newport aboard the sailing vessels Aquidneck, Sightsailer and Starlight. Aquidneck and Sightsailer were built specifically to take people sailing who have never sailed before. Both are very smooth sailing; seasickness is never an issue.

She sails comfortably with up to 49 guests. Sightsailer is a 46, comfortable yet racy sloop, which gives a greater sensation of sailing than Aquidneck. She sails comfortably with up to 13 guests. Starlight is an O'Day 34' sloop that offers the feel of sailing on a private yacht since it sails by private charter only with just 2-6 guests. Starlight is luxurious and comfortable.Aquidneck sails 7 days a week from May-October.Sightsailer and Starlight sail 5 days a week (Thursday thru Sunday)in July and August and weekends only in June and September.

On a picture perfect day, we took a fantastic sailing cruise. The captain and crew members were terrific, narrating the wonderful points along our journey. I loved how the crew pulled up the sails. What an awesome experience!

We had an amazing private sail to kick off our bachelorette weekend in Newport! Our crew were great and pointed out some interesting sites and mansions as we went along. Music system worked great and our group of 10 comfortably fit on SightSailer with drinks and snacks. Check in was seamless as well. Would recommend!

This was our second trip, our first was a special even sail to watch fire works which was great! This sail could not have been more perfect, it was a lovely afternoon sail in the harbor with great sights. Can't wait to make another trip out to Newport!

It was a great time. Fascinating watching the crew adjust the sails. Plus getting to see New port from the water is a great perspective. The only downside for us was I miscalculated how long we were gone and it resulted in a $40 parking ticket.

My brother and I did a 2 hr sail for my birthday and had the best time. The weather was perfect and the sights were beautiful. The craft was spotless and our captain was pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful. We had a blast!
