I've been on a lot of boat tours but this was the first time on a sailboat and it was the most enjoyable boat tour I have ever taken. The crew was great and the ride was a lot of fun. It was filled with gorgeous views. I thought the price was very reasonable for an hour and half of... More

We have been going on the schooner Madeleine for the past 10+ years. It is always wonderful, crew is always very knowledgeable about the sights in Newport. This most recent trip, the crew answered all our questions about sailing in general and entertained us with the story of the human hamster ball! Jeremy was one member of the crew...unfortunately don't... More

Our big group (30+) cruised Newport Harbor and Narragansett Bay on the Schooner Madeleine. The 3-man crew were pleasant and knowledgeable, and fun. They told us history and some entertaining stories, and provided bottled water and ice tea (cans). It was the first week in October, the weather was a bit cool for this Texas group but when they put... More

Got away from the cruise ship crowds on this majestic boat. The skipper was knowledgeable and friendly, crew was too. The scenery in Newport harbor was great on a sunny Fall afternoon. Very reasonably priced.

Crew is very friendly, knowledgable and safe. Took our 4 year old twins on a tour and felt confident in the crew's ability to safely sail the boat. They knew much about about the local landmarks and history even though it wasn't a guided tour. Would recommend, a great experience!

We ended our final day of sight-seeing in Newport by rushing from a previous tour to make it onto the Madeline literally minutes before the Champagne Sunset Sail departed. We are so glad we made it! As others have mentioned, actually getting out onto the water gives you a whole new vantage point of Newport and all of the breathtaking... More

We took an afternoon cruise on the Rum Runner 2 today and thoroughly enjoyed it. The captain and tour guide were both excellent providing good information and keeping us entertained. The tour took us past a lot of interesting sights like the summer houses of the rich and famous, very expensive luxury yachts and lighthouses. The facilities on the boat... More

My husband and I both loved our sail on Madeleine. There were several people on our sail which is almost always a good indicator of the experience. All three members of the crew were polite, informative and helpful. They all knew enough about the surroundings to make the cruise interesting and they shared the information in a manner that was...
