Excellent 2 hours under the guidance of skipper Green. He is a great guy , explained everything , laid back , good overview of the local area. A fantastic way to experience sailing whilst enjoying the Newport coast line.

Hey Steven, thank you for posting. Late season reviews are a good thing - it might be a bit cool, but dress for it or use one of our blankets and it’s a beautiful time to be on the water...

Hi Brian, thanks for the review. I’m glad the weather cleared up for us, that was a fun time. Cheers! - Green

Since I had never been sailing before I didn't know what to expect. This was pure relaxation! Captain Green knows his stuff and makes you feel very at ease and relaxed. It was a beautiful sunset cruise! I would do this again everyday if possible.

We had a marvelous leisure sail with Capt Green on the 44’ Lyra. Fabulous Newport weather, a knowledgeable & skilled Capt, and a bright sunny afternoon breeze with just the four of us made for a unique sail without the larger crowds typical. I would...More

Thank you! Part of the appeal of offering Private Sails (from my perspective) is being able to tailor a custom experience for my guests. It was a pleasure.

We’d like to thank Captain Green for an extraordinary sunset sail this past week. The entire experience was beyond what we expected. From our first meeting to our farewell Green was very personable and easy going, he’s great communicating with kids and funny too. Green...More

We went for a 2 hour cruise. It was a beautiful day and a perfect sail! Green is an experienced captain and a bit of a local historian too. I could not recommend more highly.

All sails at On Watch are private. If you would like to stream music on Lyra's Bluetooth speaker with your device you are welcome to, but it's entirely up to you.

$290 for a very nice and informative 2 hour sail. it was a very nice time. Capt. Green also let me take the helm. It is also customary to tip 15-20%. He is well worth it! Enjoy.
