Sailing Narragansett Bay was just the perfect way to spent the time. Crew was delightful and beer and wine served on board, complementary. Great way to send an afternoon or evening sunset cruise.

If the water isn't too rough, you'll be able to go out of the harbor area approaching the open ocean. Resting in the net area, you can get a refreshing splash of water rising up from the waves; make sure you don't mind getting water...More

I have been on most of the harbor tours in Newport, and the Privateer is by far the best! The crew is professional, friendly and accomodating. The boat is comfortable, fast and the smoothest sailing you will find here! There is no better way to...More

We had the opportunity to sail on this nice catamaran during tall ships week. We took the 5pm sail with two adults and 3 teen boys. Since it was not crowded, there was much room to move around. The boys enjoyed lounging on the netting...More
