The sailing on the Eleanor was really amazing. The crew made our experience all the more fun. Captain Steven and 1st mate Christian are very informative and friendly. I would definitely recommend them and will go back.

What a great trip sailing in Newport, RI on the sailboat Adirondack II. The 1 1/2 hour trip around the harbor was terrific. Newport harbor is not only beautiful but also a very historic place. The tour was very comfortable even to someone like me who usually is skittish on any boat! The crew was extremely knowledgeable about the history... More

Visited back in May and the crew and boat was wonderful. Very friendly and knowledgable staff and crew. The boat was comfortable and the prices were reasonable. They offered a pretty decent beer and wine selection too!!

I went out on the 11:00 a.m. cruise today on Adirondack II with my husband and his brother, who were celebrating their birthday. This is a beautiful, classic schooner offering a tremendous sightseeing opportunity in Newport harbor and Narragansett Bay. The crew was great and shared a lot of info about sights we passed. The weather and sea conditions were... More

A relaxing, yet invigorating once travelling by sail, way to see Newport from a different perspective. Exhilarating to sit on board when the Adirondack ll gets moving and you experience the tilt - the crew and captain Steve were professional and friendly throughout whilst navigating through a regatta. It was great fun to be weaving between the racers and as... More

Great sail from Newport with interesting stories and facts told by great guides. They also sell a variety of beer for just $3 throughout the entire ride and provide free water. It was a perfect thing to do on a very hot day in Newport

Lovely sunset cruise of the harbor/bay between Newport and Jamestown. Great sailboat, very professional, pleasant and knowledgeable crew, and a wonderful experience. Hour and a half sail, crew can point out historical points of interest, and are very attentive. Super way to see Newport, and the waterfront with gorgeous houses and boats. Water complimentary, blankets if you need, and drinks... More

The staff were so quick on working with us to schedule and reschedule our trip. It was a pleasant afternoon sail that takes about 1.5 hours around the Newport harbor. The staff were so friendly and talkative; the the drinks are so reasonably priced! Highly recommend them and a great activity for an afternoon!

We had a nice mid afternoon sail on the Adirondack. It's a 90 minute sail and the boat is very smooth and comfortable. The crew was pleasant and accommodating. Recommend!
