A sunset tour on the Adirondack II was thoroughly enjoyable especially when the crew raised the sails once out into the harbor. Great views of the cliffs, some of the famous mansions and the many boats in the harbor. The crew was welcoming and very entertaining.

Crew and service was warm and welcoming. Boat is well maintained and pleasant. Perfect cruise for photo opportunities around Newport and catching fresh seabreeze. My family thoroughly enjoyed their experience aboard and would call again. Thank you for a pleasant experience and lovely dark and stormies.

We have done almost all of the mansions, historical tours, museums, and other sights to see in several visits to Newport. We thought the harbor cruise would be a nice change of pace - it was. Especially since we took it on one of the days of the Bowen Wharf Seafood Festival, which was very crowded and noisy. Getting away... More

A couple we met at dinner the night before recommended going on the sunset sailboat cruise, they had gone and said it was great. We took their advice and went the following night. The weather was perfect and we had an amazing sunset. It got a little chilly but the crew handed out blankets. They sell drinks on board at... More

This was my first time on the tour and it was a lot of fun. The crew were incredible and so was the narration. My girlfriend and I had a great time and enjoyed the views.

As a local, I enjoyed this immensely. I took friends from out of town who are not used to the water like I am and we had a fabulous time. The boat was beautiful, calm and well staffed. Crew was very informative and polite. Sunset tour was even better on a flat calm night. Thank you!

Beautiful boat and great crew, made for a fantastic Anniversary Weekend. The sunset with a full moon rise at the same time was awesome!

We enjoyed this enormously. We didn't expect the boat to be quite as full as it was, so you can be a bit squeezed in, but it's a great experience to go out at sunset, and we enjoyed the trip so much that it felt a lot shorter than it actually was. You can hang out at the bars at... More

Great boat and crew. She made very respectable speed for a light wind day. As the crew will tell you it's also the cheapest bar in town. Have a mamosa sit back and max relax.

Reservations were a breeze online. Crew was great when we arrived and helpful as we couldn't find the wharf, called, and they gave easy directions. Boat was clean and the crew was professional with a great sense of humor! We sailed on a PERFECT evening in Newport; autumn sky, calm waters, nice breeze, and a picture perfect sunset. Crew gave...
