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

    I can’t stress enough how amazing this was! First off Patrick and his wife were the best hosts/captains. They told us a lot about the area while we were sailing and they made sure we were comfortable the entire trip. The boat is beautiful! Also it being Labor Day Weekend it was nice to just have the boat to ourselves away from the crowds! We got to watch the sunset on the boat and it’s probaly one of the best sunsets we’ve ever seen. I would recommend this experience to anyone!

    46ft Soubise Sailing Catamaran Boat Cruise in Newport, Rhode Island - Fully Booked will be available on September 3

    Claude was friendly, knowledgeable, and very easy to get along with! He took our family (3kids 10-15yrs old) and showed them the ropes, took as out beyond the coast, and made a fantastic day of it- Highly recommend! Only regret would be not going for a longer trip, I think several days, even up to a week to explore the coast and really get the hang of it!

    BOATING WITHOUT CROWDS

    Perfect two hour trip around the harbor. Doug and Marcia were amazing hosts to us and our 16 month old daughter. Would recommend this to anyone looking to get out on a boat in Newport.

    42' Sailboat "J/42 Affinity" Cruising Monohull Sailing Charter in Newport, Rhode Island

    Great two days on the boat with Anthony! He's a terrifically experienced captain and an interesting, fun, nice guy. A really patient teacher too, as we hoped to learn a bit more about sailing. Super accommodating, wanted to do whatever we wanted and was really invested in making sure we had a good time. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

    Cruising Catamaran for Charter in Newport, RI

    Kia and Al were the greatest team out on the water! We planned a fantastic day with them, and we would highly recommend booking with them! Their boat, Alykat, was extremely comfortable and spacious. They really went above and beyond to make it a special day. They were open to working with us on the experience we were looking for. Great charter all around!!!
