We have a 4-year old and he wanted to go out on a boat for the first time. We rented the 21 foot motorboat for an hour and it was perfect for this family of four. Captain Norman was very clear with directions and made the experience easy and trouble-free. Thanks Norm!

We rented two 2-person kayaks and had a great time. Norm knew about the tides and the wind direction and literally pointed us in the right direction. Lots of fun! A must-do when visiting Jamestown.

I came across Adventure Watersports form a google search while trying to rent a powerboat during my stay in Newport, RI. I called and spoke with Norm and booked the 22 foot center console. When I arrived a few days later for our reservation, Norm was awesome to work with! He is very laid back, informative and caring. The winds... More

Such a fun thing to do in Jamestown! Run by a lovely gentleman who helps explain the routes and equipment and guides you to the most beautiful parts of the harbor/bay to see. Also has the best food recommendations! We went two days in a row and went kayaking and jet skiing. Definitely check it out!

It was worth the trip from Newport to get away from Newport Harbor (where the beach was recently closed due to bacteria). We had 2 experienced kayakers and one nervous novice, so we rented a 2 person kayak and a single kayak, both in good shape and not too tippy, with no waiting. We did some easy kayaking as far...

The people at this business at very caring and helpful. I rented a jet ski and the owner explained how the machine works, where i can go, and how to get back in one piece. It was a beautiful day and had an amazing experience. Wouldn't have gone to any other place.
