About This Experience

General Information hide

This is the perfect way to see the sights of Rhode Island’s beautiful coastline with a guest. Your experience will take place on the 80’pilot schooner, Adirondack II, smooth, gentle sailing vessel with some speediness to boot. Within minutes of leaving the dock, you'll forget the distractions of life on land, as you experience the joy of a leisurely sailing cruise. 

Enjoy the idyllic scenery of Newport Harbor and Narragansett Bay and feel the salty ocean breeze and bask in warm sun rays.  You and your guest will pass under the Newport Bridge, New England's largest suspension bridge, and then take in the views of historic lighthouses including Newport Harbor light with its famous green optic. Finally, you will cruise by a 19th century military fort used in the Civil War and World War II before heading back to the pier.

From interesting facts to old-time legends, the maritime world of Newport has many great stories to offer and the knowledgeable captain and crew are always ready to answer your questions during this wonderful Schooner Sail.
