Our spacious 80' pilot schooner can take as many as 57 guests sailing on Narragansett Bay. During the summer months we go out 5 times daily, starting at 11 AM, for 1.5 hour sails. Our boat is Coast Guard certified and equipped with 2 rest rooms. Sit back, relax and enjoy the quiet beauty of the coastal scenery while the wind fills the sails.

Captain and the crew of the Adirondack II were superb. Luke was our guide and he was funny, knowledgeable and very courteous and charming. Thoroughly enjoyed the day.

We had good fortune and good weather for a short cruise around Narragansett Bay on the Adirondack II. She is a beautiful ship with a competent crew. Some narration while on the ride. Good activity to do while in Newport.
