    Experience Newport RI with us! - Charter "Hope San" Sailing Yacht

    I can’t stress enough how amazing this was! First off Patrick and his wife were the best hosts/captains. They told us a lot about the area while we were sailing and they made sure we were comfortable the entire trip. The boat is beautiful! Also it being Labor Day Weekend it was nice to just have the boat to ourselves away from the crowds! We got to watch the sunset on the boat and it’s probaly one of the best sunsets we’ve ever seen. I would recommend this experience to anyone!

    46ft Soubise Sailing Catamaran Boat Cruise in Newport, Rhode Island - Fully Booked will be available on September 3

    Claude was friendly, knowledgeable, and very easy to get along with! He took our family (3kids 10-15yrs old) and showed them the ropes, took as out beyond the coast, and made a fantastic day of it- Highly recommend! Only regret would be not going for a longer trip, I think several days, even up to a week to explore the coast and really get the hang of it!

    BOATING WITHOUT CROWDS

    Perfect two hour trip around the harbor. Doug and Marcia were amazing hosts to us and our 16 month old daughter. Would recommend this to anyone looking to get out on a boat in Newport.

    Captain Tony was completely accommodating from my initial inquiry right through to waiting for us to return to collect my daughters hat she accidentally left behind. A fabulous day, we will definitely refer our friends and return ourselves!
