Captain Green was authentic and very knowledgeable. My family had a wonderful sail on Lyra and were even able to raise the main and take the wheel! I highly suggest a cruise while you're visiting Newport!!

All sails at On Watch are private. If you would like to stream music on Lyra's Bluetooth speaker with your device you are welcome to, but it's entirely up to you.

$290 for a very nice and informative 2 hour sail. it was a very nice time. Capt. Green also let me take the helm. It is also customary to tip 15-20%. He is well worth it! Enjoy.
