My husband and I stumbled upon this attraction while wandering the wharf in Newport. On a whim, we bought tickets and boarded. What great fun! Neither of us had sailed on a three mast sailboat (a schooner) before, but it was exhilarating! Our crew, three young men from Newport, sailed expertly past the mansions while we listened to the history of the mansions. Later that afternoon, we toured the mansions, but truthfully, we saw more from this sailboat. The combination of land/sea tours and narrations, perfectly completed our day in Newport! Look for this company when you are there. You'll enjoy the sail!
