Joe's 1978 cruising sailboat was just the right size and weight to balance comfort with sailing experience. Joe was highly knowledgeable as a sailor and with sharing the local lore. It felt more like a sail with friends than a "charter." As a former sailor myself, I felt totally at ease in his hands. We plan to make this a regular part of our visits to Providence.
Captain Doug & Marcia were such great hosts with a very spacious, clean and comfortable boat! They made our day on the water so easy and fun. They were excellent at communicating with us leading up to the trip as well as very accommodating throughout. They provided waters, ice, towels and sunscreen- very helpful! They showed us some beautiful spots on the water as well. We will absolutely be booking again!
Steve gave us a truly memorable experience. We wanted a trip to honor the memory of a friend who sailed the harbor, and Steve was so accommodating and thoughtful in helping us plan the day. He has so much knowledge of sailing and of the area. We could't have asked for a better captain.
Simply perfect. Couldn’t have written a better experience. This crew rocks!
We (4 adults and two seven year-old boys) had a lovely four-hour sail with Patrick and Monika. They were the perfect hosts, sharing both their gorgeous boat and their day with us out on the water. There was plenty of space to relax on-board while Patrick pointed out sights of interest and even stopped along the journey so that the two boys could take a dip in the bay during our sail. Could not have asked for a more perfect Sunday afternoon in Newport!
Once we booked our trip, Patrick always returned our messages quickly, usually within an hour. We were a party of 6 with 4 adults and 2 children. The boat is beautiful. We were free to move around the boat and sit up front. There isn’t a lot of space to fit everyone in the back, but with a couple people in the front, it’s perfect. Patrick was knowledgeable about the mansions and area. Overall we had a great sail!
