Tour guide John was excellent in his knowledge and best customer service skills to make everyone on board happy and fulfilled with their best experience in this little cruise in ocean waters.
There are several tour boats but we chose Gansett cruise because their ship Captains have demonstrated great care when touring through mooring fields & on our special day selecting a quick, stable holding pattern...
Alana & Greg were consummate hosts - they are great to spend time with and have great stories to tell along the way.We highly recommend the experience - it was perfect for us as a couple, and it would be great for...
Loved that they provide a bottle of champagne and that we can also bring our own( which we did!).. the night was perfect- calm waters, warm weather and beautiful colorful sky!
The boat is perfect for a small group and I really loved the lighter tackle as it made every fish feel big! Plus Captain John has plenty of fun stories to tell while on your way out and back!
Captain Sheriff and his mate Nathaniel patient taught the boys all about the ocean, local sea life, each fish we caught (and there were MANY!), the fishing poles & bait used and the conditions at sea.
Beautiful boat and a wonderful sail! Patrick and Monika were so welcoming, highly recommend this sail if you're looking for beautiful views on the water while in Newport!
This was the highlight of our trip to Newport! Patrick and Monika were the most gracious of hosts as we enjoyed the sunset on their gorgeous private sailboat, the Hope San.
HUGE thanks to Kelly Smith and his help C-Devil II Sportfishing Inc. Had a great time caught one of my personal best I HIGHLY RECOMMEND anyone wanting a good fishing trip to come see Kelly.
The boat was perfect for our group of 6, and it was really special to watch the sunrise on the water, then spend a perfect sunny day reeling in big fish.
From my son-in-law, still in his 30's to his grandfather,in his 80's, the mate, Marcus, made sure everyone was having a great experience.. Thanks for a great trip and you will certainly see us again!
As our boat made its way to the lobster traps, our guide gave an engaging talk about the history of Newport and lobster fishing, and interesting information about lobsters, their anatomy and habits.
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.
Captain Green is Amazing!!! My 5 year old son was on our tour with us and just about the time he was getting antsy Cpt. Green occupied his time and still was able to sail the boat and tell us all about the history...
Absolutely wonderful trip!! Dan kept us entertained with facts & jokes while we watched a most spectacular fireworks display over Newport!! Emma and Captain Mark were awesome as well!!
Thanks to Emma, Kevin, and Connor for a great sail and lovely views and stories of Newport while sailing the waters on a comfortable vessel.

... that Providence RI has to offer (and that is way more than we ever knew or expected)...our amazing day there ended with an over the top experience with La Gondola Joseppi was so informative as our gondolier.
Our time on the water was a pure joy, and it was because of Captain Ed! (Of course, the open sails, blue sky, and peaceful waters played a huge part too!)A thousand thanks,Ronnie, Meg, Michael and Lana
Every year my family spends a week vacationing in Newport, we visit frequently throughout the year but this is a favorite vacation tradition... the Sunset Sail is a fun & enjoyable experience filled with laughter.
We set sail with Captain Wes with his able crew Jake & Meg - great young crew - boat immaculate and they were thoughtful and accommodating.
We did the sunset cruise on their other Schooner, but it was EXCELLENT, the two female crew were outstanding and it was a magical tour, great stories and very funny, absolutely worth every penny
The bonus is knowledge level of the Skipper and crew regarding the technical sailing, America's Cup history, local history and landmarks and stories of the great ones in the sport.
The Crew & Capt were awesome what a great excursion sailing in such an amusing vessel with such history winning the Americas Cup 1958 which has been restored to its original beauty .
I loved the way Captain Tom made the history of the river come alive with unique anecdotes as well as the expected "on the left is....", and at the same time it's a fun, relaxed hour on the water.
Offers a unique perspective of Providence while enjoying a leisurely boat ride along the Providence River.

This was the highlight of our vacation!! Beautiful tour of the harbor, historic homes, tall ships, and yachts!! Highly recommend this tour!
We had a perfect sunny warm day in Newport this past weekend which was definitely highlighted by the Newport Harbor and Narragansett East Passage Cruise we took On the Rum Runner.
She provided lots of info on wildlife on the river, gave everyone opportunities for photos, and helped our group to navigate into and out of the various tidal areas of the river.
The Narrow River offers a scenic route with lots of birds and sandbars and hermit crabs along the way.
Kat and Hannah both kept us and our other fellow cruisers (total 13 of us including the crew) with plenty of stories from their travels, childhood memories, experiences sailing and their desires for the future.
The crew - Captain Wes and deckhands, Trudy and Hannah, did a great job of making everyone comfortable and secure (including some of the small children onboard).
... picking the appropriate kayak for my skill level - or lack of skill;) - making it super easy for us to get in and out of the water and where to explore based on the wind, Corrie was so helpful and knowledgeable!
Corrie was amazing— she was filled with Block Island facts and info and kayaking on the pond was relaxing, beautiful and serene.
Kevin and Andrew of Island Sail Parasail thoroughly and professionally prepared us for our ride by explaining safety rules and walking us through every step of our upcoming experience.
Great experience with Island Style Parasail , Captain Kevin and Chief Andrew really know their job of putting everyone at ease and delivering on promised memorable experience.
Bruce, Erica (the skipper), James, and Rebecca were super nice and extremely knowledgeable about the boat, sailing, history, and landmarks in the area.
The crew led by Captain Erica along with James and Rebecca were fantastic and they allowed our two sons and daughter (who are young adults) to participate in various roles during our sailing venture.
My daughter (24-year old history major) and I have lived in Rhode Island and visited Jamestown and Newport many times but this cruise provides a whole new perspective of both.
Family group of 9 and everyone had a fantastic day! Rose Island Lighthouse and lunch in Newport, what a day!
Super knowledgeable of the area along with him being an excellent captain had us learning interesting facts of the area and always feeling safe on board, even when he raced through the waves at our request!
It was a picture perfect evening and we enjoyed Champagne, cheese and crackers and Captain Jack’s stories and his knowledge of the history of the area!

Misty Charters

His son Mark does an Awesome job as a Mate, always very attentive, does a great job cleaning the fish as well as keeping the deck looking spotless.
Excellent professional advice and help from Captain Andy and Captain Mark for beginners and an expert fisherman.
I was guided by the incredibly informative instructor, Evan, who let me sail around the Newport Bridge, practicing various sailing techniques while enjoying the beautiful scenery of Newport and Jamestown.
Evan is a great sailing instructor, experienced, knowledgeable, and laid back, gives you confidence and makes sailing fun.
... easy going and reassured me the night would be fun & easy and it was The moon was behind the clouds but the lights from the shoreline reflecting off the water made for a serene, beautiful night of paddling.
Our instructor, Ben, was very pleasant, knowledgeable and patient, making this a comfortable and enjoyable introduction to the sport.
Kevin and Ben were awesome hosts, providing smooth sailing, delicious cocktails, and fun for everyone on board.
Captain Nolan and his first mate, Brittany, were welcoming, attentive and shared good information about the city's history and local landmarks.
This was my third surf lesson but my first with this business but the overall experience was just as impressive as lessons I have taken in Hawaii and Costa Rica!! Definitely recommend it!! Caught some awesome waves!!
My sister and I along with my tween niece had a wonderful kayaking adventure along the river and inlets of Stonington and watch hill RI.
Very nice and knowledgeable captain that you can tell really loves what he does and is good at it because we caught a ton of fish.
The rods and reels were really nice - I'm used to the heavy duty gear they give you on a large party boat fishing charter, so it was amazing to use real gear.
... and beyond to make sure everyone has a good time and feels safe we are talking about the Atlantic Ocean after all The boat is clean and well maintained and Capt Rick is experienced and knows how to find the fish
I have been on a number of different fishing trips with Captain Rick and crew and it is always a great experience.

Mako II

The Mako 2 and Captain Dave T are top notch... My friends and I charter the Mako 2 often during the summer and we decided to try some fall fishing with Captain Dave.
The first mate Al Moe makes each trip worth it and the captain always puts us on the big fish Stripers, Blue Fish, Black Sea Bass you name!
Captain Steve was very knowledgeable and happy to answer her many questions and patiently teach both of us what we needed to know to catch fish in the area… and we caught A LOT of nice size striper from the time o...
The weather, the water temperature, the winds, the tide, the phase of the moon, the fishing boat and captain, and whether the fish are "biting".
