Overview

Sightsailing of Newport offers daily sailing cruises, tours and private sailing charters in Newport aboard the sailing vessels Aquidneck, Sightsailer and Starlight. Aquidneck and Sightsailer were built specifically to take people sailing who have never sailed before. Both are very smooth sailing; seasickness is never an issue. Both offer tickets for public sails and are available for private charters. Aquidneck is an 80' schooner. She is comfortable, stable and offers a relaxing sailing experience. She sails comfortably with up to 49 guests. Sightsailer is a 46, comfortable yet racy sloop, which gives a greater sensation of sailing than Aquidneck. She sails comfortably with up to 13 guests. Starlight is an O'Day 34' sloop that offers the feel of sailing on a private yacht since it sails by private charter only with just 2-6 guests. Starlight is luxurious and comfortable.Aquidneck sails 7 days a week from May-October.Sightsailer and Starlight sail 5 days a week (Thursday thru Sunday)in July and August and weekends only in June and September.

Really enjoyed this 2 hour trip with our captain Ed. Very easy and comfortable. Fun for our family of 3 but would have been great for more people as well. Would definitely do it again!

Captain and crew were welcoming and friendly. That made for a memorable experience. Both people are an asset to your business.

The crew members were safe, informative, and super friendly. They made the experience so much fun with little bits of info as we passed sites, but not too much to bore us! Family friendly also :)

We had a wonderful time on this sailing cruise. Even though it was a bit rainy, the crew did an excellent job. They provided rain gear for us and provided nice historical stories about the homes along the harbor.

Wow! We sailed on the Aquidneck and enjoyed it thoroughly. Tyson, our captain, was entertaining as well as skilled. It was exhilarating and relaxing simultaneously. We brought our teenage kids and my mother. All of us thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Our sail on Sightsailer was not only fun but also very informative. Sightsailer was the way to go. Small boat, not crowded, and plenty of opportunity to move around and talk. Thanks to John and Emily for a nice late morning sail. Highly recommended.

This cruise is fantastic. They serve some beer and champagne (they stated up front that this is not a "Booze Cruise", but it seemed like everyone had plenty). The crew are knowledgeable, entertaining and helpful. They involve anyone that would like to help in hoisting...More

Adults are $36. I would book ahead of time either on line or call them. Trips do sell out especially on busy summer weekends.
