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.

Best 4 hours of sailing I have done in a long time. I went with my 3 teenage daughters. Under the watchful eye of "Captain Daniel", the girls learned how to sail around Jamestown under 15 knot winds. What an adventure for all of us. This will become a yearly event for us.
Looked and used other charters....this one was the best for us. Great boat, great staff...Great Time

My wife and I have sailed Sightsailer for many years, bringing youngsters and "young-at -heart". All want to return. Comfortable and stable, yet close enough to the water to really "feel the sailing". If you want to experience what 'its really like", this is for you. If you sailed and sold your boat but miss it...this is for you. Staff is professional, friendly and helpful. What a great way to enjoy the water and the sights around Newport.

II had the wonderful opportunity to sail with Sightsailing twice this summer. (First with a group of colleagues and the other with my 7-yr old daughter) Both times were simply fantastic. The location, the boat and the crew were second to none. The crew was extremely knowledgeable and had quite a sense of humor.

A special experience.

The very best way to connect with the history of Newport is to take a sail around the harbor. We took the sunset sail w friends who were celebrating their anniversary. The captain was an experianced sailor, friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the history of Newport. We brought a nice bottle of wine along w some crackers and cheese and had a truly delightful 2hr sail. We thought the cost was a teriffic value! Bring your camera. The harbor is filled with beautiful boats, homes and views!
