We had a fantastic time with Cap. Doug and his first mate (wife) Marcia. They were so attentive and gave us exactly the experience we were hoping for - cruising with a little bit of swimming. 10/10 recommend!
Such a fun day! Had such a lovely time were able to swim at an awesome Cove. They went above and beyond. Also had all cleaning supplies on board and everything was cleaned very well!
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!
Wonderful way to explore Newport with Doug and Marcia!
Had a beautiful day out on the water! Boat was super clean, comfortable and was perfect for taking in all the sites...highly recommend! Can’t wait to come back ;)
