    NEWPORT JAZZ & FOLK FEST SWIM AND PICNIC BOAT

    I’m so glad I booked with these two! They were so accommodating with both social distancing guidelines and just generally making us feel comfortable. They had waters, a cooler with ice, and a Bluetooth radio for us to use. We went on a tour of the harbor area and then they took us to a spot where we could swim or go cliff jumping. Would absolutely recommend and will book again!

    Experience Newport RI with us! - Charter "Hope San" Sailing Yacht

    We had a really wonderful time with Patrick and Monica. The yacht was lovely and comfortable for the 6 of us. They were very helpful, and willing to adjust the course and speed based on our request. When our friends’ puppy got sea sick and threw up , they cleaned up without any complaint! Lovely conversation, pretty views of the port and all in all a very nice time :)

    Experience Newport RI with us! - Charter "Hope San" Sailing Yacht

    Patrick & Monika were fantastic hosts. Ran perfectly on time, boat was top notch 👌 We absolutely loved our time out and appreciated the hospitality. Would do it over and over again if life allowed and highly recommend! As a side note in the age of Covid, we always felt safe. You could tell the boat was clean and even had sanitizer available.

    Cruising Catamaran for Charter in Newport, RI

    Kia was extremely communicative prior to the weekend of the boat outing. Even through a bad / rainy weekend forecast she was willing to be flexible about the time of the trip. They were extremely friendly and great company. I will definitely be recommending to friends in the future

    Rent this Bertram Boat in Newport, RI

    110% recommend. Excellent overall experience with zero complaints or criticisms! Andrew is experienced, professional, affable and his boat is not only pristine and clean but has an awesome story behind it. Only way you’ll be privy to that story is by hiring him as your captain!! He knows the local waters and history, and is a great guide for whatever experience you’re looking for. We’re heading back to Newport in a month and already have him booked again. Total no-brainer 🤙🏻
