Guest Comments

“A beautiful afternoon or evening.”

The staff could not be better. We have taken this sail each time we visit in Newport. A good value and a wonderful experience.

“Wonderful day on the water!”

We got to see and hear about several of the lighthouses in the lower Narragansett Bay area and also learn a bit about the history of the Rum Runner II as well as…

“Amazing time”

It was a fabulous mix of information and fun. The time flew by and we all agreed that this was the highlight of our trip!

“Fantastic tour, very knowledgable captain.”

We spent a beautiful hour and a half slowly exploring the lighthouses, coves and magnificent waterfront properties that line Newport Harbor on a recent weekend and our tour starts out with a complimentary mimosa and little pastries….
