Seeing Newport from the water is a must-do! And a sunset sail on the Madeleine is a great way to do it! The crew was friendly and informative, but also let us all just enjoy the sail and the scenery. It's hard to imagine a sunset over Newport Harbor getting any better, but add the wind in your hair and... More

The sails on the boat are impressive. It was nice and windy when we started our cruise. It did rain a little and the crew provided us with ponchos. The crew worked well together and were informative. It was nice to see Newport from the Bay.

Much of the charm of Newport is all sailboats and yachts on the water but getting on out on the water gives you the real experience. Sailing is so quiet you can't help but fully relax. Unless you pick up a lively breeze and get to lean a bit. The staff at the dock is very friendly, helpful and the... More

My wife and I sailed last Sunday afternoon in ideal conditions. It was the first time ever on a sailboat for both of us, and won't be our last. Although this was not a narrated excursion, the crew did a great job of informing passengers about local buildings, landmarks and other vessels along the way. Thanks again to the captain... More

Normally I am not a water person, but my hubby set this cruise up and it was wonderful! 90 minutes of beautiful views, smooth sailing and informative crew. It was supposed to be cloudy but the sun came out just as we boarded. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the crew made that happen. Thanks to Matt, Charlie and Kami!!
