My wife and I were on our 5 year wedding anniversary getaway, and took the trip. The views were amazing and the crew were outstanding. Plenty of beers and champagne too! This trip was worth every penny. Can’t wait to visit again.

This is the perfect Newport Experience. It starts with drinks at the marina and then you board the Schrooner Aurora and sail around the Newport Bay. The Newport Bay is perfect, as it is protected, so you get the wind, without the large waves. The...More
