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. Both offer tickets for public sails and are available for private charters. Aquidneck is an 80' schooner. She is comfortable, stable and offers a relaxing sailing experience. 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.

My wife and I spontaneously decided to take a tour around the harbor. We could not be happier with our decision. The crew was courteous and had a great sense off humor. They pointed some interesting facts and history of Newport. Would definitely do it again.

We took the sights ailing tour in Newport August 2016, to celebrate my mothers birthday. The crew was very accommodating and the sail was fabulous! We had a few young children with us and they really enjoyed the sail as well. I would definitely do it again next time we are in New England.

We had a long weekend in Newport and our sunset cruise one was of the highlights. Beautiful views, a friendly crew and an awesome boat, along with happy and outgoing passengers, made our excursion one fantastic time! I would most certainly go on the cruise again and recommend others to do the same.

This was an amazing cruise that goes through the harbor of Newport. We enjoyed our champagne and beers that we served on the boat as well. The crew was awesome and we enjoyed every second!
