Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Sightsailing of Newport offers daily sailing cruises, tours and private sailing charters in Newport aboard the sailing vessels Aquidneck, Sightsailer and Starlight. Aquidneck and Sightsailer were built specifically to take people sailing who have never sailed before. Both are very smooth sailing; seasickness is never an issue. Both offer tickets for public sails and are available for private charters. Aquidneck is an 80' schooner. She is comfortable, stable and offers a relaxing sailing experience. She sails comfortably with up to 49 guests. Sightsailer is a 46, comfortable yet racy sloop, which gives a greater sensation of sailing than Aquidneck. She sails comfortably with up to 13 guests. Starlight is an O'Day 34' sloop that offers the feel of sailing on a private yacht since it sails by private charter only with just 2-6 guests. Starlight is luxurious and comfortable.Aquidneck sails 7 days a week from May-October.Sightsailer and Starlight sail 5 days a week (Thursday thru Sunday)in July and August and weekends only in June and September.

I booked a private 2 hour sail for my family on the 35' sail boat Starlight. Captain Ed was fantastic , the cruise was a highlight of our trip and I would highly recommend it. the whole family was sterring and enjoying Ed's comments and remarks and the wind was great on Columbus weekend. Next year we will be back and I will be returning again to sail on this very nice boat.

The day we went out on the Aquidneck was a perfect day for sailing. We were in Newport in September so the cruise was not crowded and was very enjoyable. The crew was very knowledgeable and friendly…it was like being out on a friend’s boat. They answered all our questioned and told us about the history of the area. It was a wonderful sail, and we would definitely do it again if we were in the area.
