Newport Harbor and Narragansett Bay are two of the most beautiful bodies of water in the world. They also offer some of the best sailing conditions in the U.S.! No where else can one so easily experience superb sailing conditions while viewing stunning seaside estates, famous yachts and other visually arresting sights set against the backdrop of a colonial town and beautiful rocky shoreline.

On private charters, guests may participate in the sailing or sit back and relax. No sailing experience is required.

Customer Cancellations: You may cancel and receive a 100% refund providing you cancel at least 10 days before departure.
Weather Cancellations: You really have nothing to worry about! We won't send you out in the pouring rain or if the radar shows it's likely to start raining just after you depart. We will cancel in the event of sustained rain, thunder, lightning, high winds, rough seas, dense fog or if threatening weather appears imminent. However, we will sail in cloudy, light to medium fog and overcast conditions. If it looks like there is a small chance of a light sprinkle or passing shower, we'll sail. So although we can't guarantee you a a postcard picture-perfect sunset, rest assured that we won't send you out in the pouring rain either! Since the weather can change rapidly in New England, we often do not make cancellation decisions until shortly before departure time.See our FAQ section for more details.
