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 2 rest rooms. Sit back, relax and enjoy the quiet beauty of the coastal scenery while the wind fills the sails.

I went on this 2 times in one day. We pre booked the sunset a few days before we were in Newport and we didn't like 1st beach, so last minute booked the sailing for 2:30pm. Both times were fun but sunset was best. Nice crew, and drinks were good and only $5. Great views of Newport and the coast.... More

Beautiful sunset sail. We were able to sit along the rail of the boat and see the gorgeous coast. I would suggest getting there at least 10-15 minutes prior to get on line and choose your seat. Crew was informative but also gave ample time to sit and enjoy your drinks. We will definitely go back the next time we... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our sunset sail in Newport. Although the day was quite warm, the sail in the early evening was cool and relaxing. It was very pleasant to have the sails utilized for the majority of our sail. It's a great way to see many of the sights around the area.

Relaxing and enjoyable sail. The boat takes you around the Newport Harbor. The crew was friendly and would check in with you if you wanted to order a beverage. There were only a few moments where the crew pointed out interesting sites and talked about them, so if you're looking for a heavily narrated tour, this may not be it,... More

Took my wife on the Adirondack II for her birthday and it was a great time. Crew were great and the sailing was a blast. I would recommend to anyone who wants to try sailing.

Went sailing with six friends on the Eleanor. Smaller more intimate sailboat which we liked much more than the bigger one. Steve and Collin were fantastic! Collin was extremely knowledgeable about the area, and how great story telling skills. The drinks were a perfect complement to sailing around the bay.

We sailed on the Eleanor, a smaller boat that Adirondack has. IT was delightful to cruise across the harbor and watch the sun go down. The crew was lots of fun. Interesting, entertaining and informative. One of the highlights of our trip to Newport.
