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.

I went there twice. I had a great time both times. First time I went with friends and last time with my boyfriend. It worked excellent for both occasions.

What an experience!! We did the evening sail on the Aquidneck. It was absolutely perfect. The crew was great and the boat was clean and spacious. It was an extremely smooth ride and i couldn’t think of a better way to end the day!!!

We had a party of 12 on the Aquidneck to celebrate some birthday parties. I hadn't expected that we would get a tour of the harbor and it was very educational! The crew was very friendly and accommodating.

Our afternoon cruise on the Aquidneck was very enjoyable. The boat was comfortable, and the crew were friendly, funny, and informative. We were fortunate that the weather was good and only about 12 passengers aboard. Well worth the money!

We enjoyed the sunset cruise on the last evening of our vacation. It was a wonderful trip around Narragansett Harbor, the crew were very friendly and very helpful, and we can’t wait to do it again!

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