Our spacious 80' pilot schooner can take as many as 57 guests sailing on Narragansett Bay. During the summer months we go out 5 times daily, starting at 11 AM, for 1.5 hour sails. Our boat is Coast Guard certified and equipped with 2 rest rooms. Sit back, relax and enjoy the quiet beauty of the coastal scenery while the wind fills the sails.

Took my wife to Newport for her 40th Birthday. We took the sunset sail. Although the weather was cold and grey the cruise was beautiful and the staff was excellent. I highly recommend the Adirondack 2.

We just happened to be going through Newport and wanted to go sailing for the first time. It was the most spectacular view with great conversations with the crew! Will definitely be going back!

This was my second sailing excursion in Newport and it was very enjoyable and pleasant. The crew was informative, safe and funny. They knew local history and and provided refreshments. There were a lot of photo ops and comfortable seating.The sailboat was beautiful! What a nice ride!
