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.

A great day out with a wonderful crew sailing around Narragansett' Bay. While some might like a longer cruise. We felt the hour and a half was perfect. Highly recommended.

We wanted a relaxing tour and the morning sail was perfect in meeting our expectations. They kept coming around and serving us as the sail continued.

Crew was friendly, knowledgeable and extremely personable. Lots of other tours around town, but the sail and experience was truly far beyond our expectations.

My family celebrated many occasions, birthdays, retirements and anniversary aboard the Sight sailor. We had a relaxing sail while watching the sunset over Newport harbor. A truly memorable experience.
