My husband and I had a wonderful sunset cruise! Outstanding experience and they were so friendly and insightful. We were able to play music on their speaker and was so peaceful. Would highly recommend!

What an awesome experience! Could not have been better. We had never been on a sailboat before and if we ever get the chance again to come sailing on the Lyra, we will definitely take it!

We enjoyed a great, relaxing and fun two-hour, afternoon sail with Captain Emma aboard the Lyra. Great weather didn't hurt, but I would enthusiastically recommend On Watch Sailing. From booking to disembarking, everything worked smoothly and exactly as we hoped. And Emma was terrific!

Our sunset sail was absolutely perfect! The views of Newport and the sunset were just stunning. Captain Green was a lovely host, as he provided some fun facts during our ride, a bluetooth speaker for us, pillows to sit on, and even volunteered to photograph our bachelorette party with his camera and drone! Very relaxing evening spent enjoying our apps and drinks on the water. Even the water taxi said if he were to recommend anyone for a private sail, it'd be Captain Green!
