Charlie and his wife were fantastic. Very professional, very knowledgeable and incredibly warm and inviting. They were especially awesome with our two little girls, with lots of extras for the girls to enjoy. The boat was great. Spacious and even bigger with more seating than in pictures. Would 100% book with them again!
Captain Charles is THE BEST!! My husband, 3 children and I booked this and it was hands down the highlight of vacation for each one of us. Captain Charles (or Uncle CC as my oldest has now named him) went above and beyond to make sure the kids had fun, felt comfortable and we’re safe. He had numerous life jacket to choose from and let them jump off the boat AND had a huge raft he tied out there for the kids. We had no idea about this and the kids cannot stop talking about it. We all loved touring through the harbor and hearing so many interesting bits from Charles about places, boats and homes we were seeing. It was fascinating. Captain Charles could not have been nicer to work with and meet. His communication was top notch from days before our ride together. Once on the boat, he has a natural way of making you feel like you’ve been friends for years. I cannot say enough wonderful things about our time with Captain Charles on his boat, which was beautiful and the cleanest boat.
Family of four had a fantastic time boating with Captain Charles! Harbor tour was fun and informative and dropping anchor in Mackerel Cove to swim and have lunch was perfect! Boat was roomy, very clean and had shade and sun so everyone was happy! Best day ever… we all highly recommend!
Our day sailing around Newport harbor was hands-down the best part of our vacation here in Newport. The boat was immaculate, Charles and his wife Vanessa were the BEST hosts (and were WONDERFUL with 3 young children on board!), and the trip itself was perfect for our family - an experience none of us will ever forget and made the day perfect. There are not enough kind words to describe how wonderful everything was. If ever you find yourself in Newport, and are looking for a personalized, special, and memorable experience - this is the boat for you.
Captain Charles was the absolute BEST host in Newport, RI! My group of friends and I had the most wonderful day exploring Rhode Island. He is knowledgeable about the area, hospitable, and so much fun! I would rate him 10/10 and highly recommend to anyone visiting the area looking for a fun boat day.
We clean the boat from bow to stern and top and bottom. The forward stateroom is cleaned, lockers, counters, and galley, all wiped with cleaners. The bathroom is scrubbed and dried by hand with a towel. The helm station, bench seats, and back aft of the boat are washed and dried. Now, why do we go to such extremes? This is my personal boat and my family is on board often. We do one charter a day for four days a week so after you leave, I have the whole rest of the day to clean, clean, and clean. But, no worries, I love it. I think you will too. We are a great way to see the sights of Newport harbor, various lighthouses, or a beautiful sunset. Whatever your pleasure, call us for the best experience.
You’ll get directions to the departure location when you make a booking.
Full refund up to 1 day prior.
If the weather is unacceptable to you and the captain, the trip is cancelled, and your funds returned.
