**Normally $250/hr. Fall special $150/hr plus a bottle of free champagne! We’re just trying to stay busy :) Do Newport right! Cruise in style & comfort on our spacious and beautiful yacht! Our young and fun crew make this laid back experience one you’ll never forget. Whether your looking for adventure or relaxation, we‘ll treat you to an Newport nautical experience you’ll never forget.  Calypso is a impressive yacht with a classic look and modern amenities. There’s lots of cozy spots for you and your group to lounge including beanbags and a love seat way up on the bow, or back in the cockpit.  Inside she’s very spacious with an open floor plan, 6'6" headroom, two bathrooms (heads), hot outdoor shower for after a swim, dining table, refrigerators, a huge v-birth (inside bow area) with wrap around couch, a full kitchen and a BBQ area. She's Designed by world famous yacht designer John G Alden and built by America’s oldest yacht builders, Hodgdon Brothers of Boothbay Maine. Evey sail is different and every guest is different. We can sail aggressively and fast or keep it mellow and even-keeled. You can BYOB & Food or let us wow you with options like local oysters & clams shucked while we sail, charcuterie boards, and lobster rolls.  We can serve Champagne, Rosé or your favorite cocktails. Want us to have a birthday cake or flowers ready to surprise someone? Just ask. (So far we have a 100% batting average for proposals….on Calypso she always says YES!) We’re here to share the place we love with others and create unforgettable experiences.    After a safety briefing and an overview of how a sailboat works, it’s time to leave the mooring and cruise around downtown harbor to see all the mega yachts! Any guests who want to help sail the boat, now’s the time to learn to hoist the sails! Off we‘ll sail under the Newport Bridge, past The Rose Island Light House, past Clingstone (the house on the rocks), Fort Adam’s, Goat Island, Fort Witherill, Castle Hill, and into Rhode Island Sound where you‘ll really start to feel the wind blow! Depending on how long your group has chosen to stay on the water, we can either find a cove to anchor and swim, paddle board, snorkel, and eat and drink some more or we can start heading back towards downtown newport with the wind at our backs.  Once back on the mooring we’ll say our good-byes and take a moment for some last minute photos before one of our crew will shuttle you back to the marina on The Pineapple Express. If you have any questions, we can answer those through GetMyBoat’s messaging platform before you pay. Just hit, “Request to Book” and send us an inquiry for a custom offer.

    Cannot recommend this boat and crew enough! Steve, Bec, and Chris did a fabulous job and delivered on a perfect day. From sailing around Newport down to the delicious lobster rolls. Steve and Bec are great owners and Chris made sure we were all taken care of. We will definitely be back! Thanks again.

    Great trip! Steve and Bec were great hosts and we loved their little furry co-captain Ellie (the cutest and sweetest pup) We had a romantic sunset cruise and our hosts provided a great atmosphere, interesting history about Newport, took lots of great pictures and kept the drinks flowing! We were celebrating a birthday and the experience was perfect. In terms of two people to take us out, Steve and Bec were the perfect couple to enjoy an evening sailing with.

    Steven and Bec are amazing. From the first request I put through several months ago to the day we sailed on August 28th, the communication, the detail and the experience has been hard to beat! Steven and his first mate, Chris, took us for a 4 hour boat ride around Newport harbor. Not only were they friendly and knowledgeable but they were also so accommodating and helpful with getting our drinks and snacks. While we brought our own drinks and food, they can literally curate any experience! Could not more highly recommend!
