Overview

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.

If I must be honest, the sunset sail was a bit disappointing. The crew was nice and friendly, the boat fine, but the actual cruise was limited - never even neared "open water" or a great view of mansions or the cliffs. Really was more...More

I went out on the mimosa morning sail and loved every minute. The crew were friendly, fun and knowledgeable, the boat was beautiful, and I took away a great experience. I would absolutely do it again (and ask more questions! ☺️).

We took the 1:30 p.m. cruise with our two 10-yo daughters. It was well worth the time and money! The crew was fun and engaging, and the scenery was gorgeous! It was the perfect break between touring mansions.

Thanks for your feedback. Captain Kayla is new to us this season but not new to skippering schooners. She is extremely competent and I think her love of sailing is evident as she sails the Adirondack II down the bay, with a big smile on...More
