Overview

We sail from early May to Mid October. Our spacious 80' pilot schooner can take as many as 57 guests sailing on Narragansett Bay. During the summer months we go out 5 times daily, starting at 11 AM, for 1.5 hour sails. Our boat is Coast Guard certified and equipped with a boat bathrooms. Sit back, relax and enjoy the quiet beauty of the coastal scenery while the wind fills the sails.

We sailed on the Adirondack II and the experience was great. A bit cold and windy but the crew were excited for "real sailing" and it was. Plenty of blankets on board to keep you warm and plenty of Dark & Stormy rum cocktails. Crew...More

The Best thing I've found to do in Newport. Drinks were reasonable, views were amazing and the water is protected inside the bay so I don't think anyone could get seasick here. Good stories told by the attentive crew/bartenders.

Great sunset cruise with the fun and informative crew of Kayla, Nolan and Connor. We saw many sights, heard some history of the town, saw a nice sunset and learned the importance of keeping plastics out if the water. Would highly recommend.
