We registered for the sunset cruise as an add-on with our B&B registration so all we needed to do was show up at the dock at the appointed time. The boarding process was smooth and the ship ship-shape! The crew's banter made the trip entertaining. I was impressed with how they were able to interact with all ages. There was... More

We took the 2:30 excursion on the Madeleine today. Not only was the weather perfect, the winds cooperated (about 15 knots) and we had a true sailing experience. The crew was friendly and professional. They talked to all the guests and offered information on points of interest. We've done all the Newport sail cruises and the Madeleine our new favorite....

We had a great time. The staff was top notch! Gave explanation and stories of points of interest. I have sailed with them before and will again. The only down side was a group of rowdy partiers, but this was not companies fault. Suggestion to have family cruises as their were several children on board and these people had foul... More

Not sure which I liked better, the Schooner Madeline, the view or the crew. All three were exceptional especially today.

Informative and fun, had about 18-20 knots of wind which had the boat up on its side more than once. Nice tour around the bay and staff was knowledgable about the area.

My husband and I, along with our adult kids and their spouses as well as our 1 year old granddaughter took the 1.5 hour cruise around the harbor. It was a beautiful day with perfect wind and we all had a really nice time seeing the sights by water. The crew were fantastic and provided interesting facts of the sights... More

We enjoyed the 4:30 cruise this afternoon. As I looked around, I realized the schooner had senior citizens, young children, teenagers....and everyone was having fun, enjoying the tour and each other's company. The captain, Jeremy, and his crew really did a great job of making us all feel welcomed. Highly recommend

A thoroughly enjoyable 1 1/2 hours. The crew was very entertaining and informative. We saw some great sites, including Jackie O's childhood home. Free water and ice tea is offered. Family friendly.
