Overview

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.

Boat was clean & well maintained. Captain & crew were competent and very courteous. It was a beautiful evening to sail around Narragansett Bay. We will be back next season. I highly recommend this charter company.

Best couple hours on the water. When our skipper cut the engine, the sounds of the sea transported us to a different period of time. Thanks

This is a must for an authentic Newport experience. You'll leave with a new perspective about the town and fall in love with a need to return. Highly recommend! Plus, the crew has charism!

Response from Julie G | Reviewed this property |
Adults are $36. I would book ahead of time either on line or call them. Trips do sell out especially on busy summer weekends.
