Our two hour sail on the 12 meter yacht Columbia was outstanding. The captain and crew worked hard to make the experience enjoyable and all the passengers had a great time. At various points during the cruise, the passengers had to help with the lines or crank one of the grinders to haul in lines, which made everyone feel like they were part of the crew. The cruise took us to several parts of the bay and the captain had stories about each place we went by. This experience is highly recommended for all visitors to Newport!
Had a wonderful time on board this beautiful yacht. It was a perfect day and our Skipper was competent, friendly, and handsome! Looked like a Kennedy! Loved taking the wheel for a little while and pretending the boat was mine! Some braver souls helped hoist the sails. Enjoyed Newport Harbor sights and saw some other really beautiful yachts and sail boats. A perfect way to spend an afternoon! Recommended!
I highly recommend taking this sail around the harbor the captain, Kevin, who races his sailboats was excellent!
This was a lovely and informative trip on the Heritage. We got hands on experience but only if we wanted it. Great trip! I completely recommend it.
This trip is money well spent. From the time it shoves off till the time it returns, the trip is filled with fun, beautiful scenery and a great crew. Give it a try and you wont be disappointed!!
Loved that the crew allowed many of the passengers to assist in sailing. Awesome and friendly crew. All very knowledgeable in explaining the art of sailing and the history of the area of Newport. Very highly recommended!
Great experience! A must when traveling to Newport! The captain and crew were informative and helpful.
I highly recommend it! It was an exciting and different experience. Just be warned...this isn't a leisurely sail around the harbor. We assisted the crew with the sail and had to switch positions during the sail trying hard not to slide off the ship. Can't wait to try this again on my next visit.
Highly recommend this 2 hour sailing adventure. My wife and I know nothing about sailing but found this cruise very informative and extremely enjoyable. Also a great way to see Newport and some mansions from the water.
Nice crew, a lot of fun. We had good windy conditions and the scipper managed the boat to go very fast almost the who,e time. Some of us werenalowed to stear the boat. Fun!
Great yacht, crew and experience. Allowed to be at the whelm and grinder as you were interested. Ferrying to yacht took longer than expected but overall experience was terrific! Felt completely safe yet got to have a thrilling time.
priceless...Duncan and crew were outstanding. gave us a great overview of the 23 ship from early 70's! TIP: don't wear sandals, flip flops or hats. if you do they will place underneath. Hats were offered for purchase and water were provided at no charge. thanks for the GREAT memories!
The trip was fabulous!! I took by two granddaughters, ages 15 and 13, and their Mom and Dad. The crew headed by Capt. Gus was great!! Everyone enjoyed the sailing experience. It was a perfect night for a sail. My granddaughters got to heist the sail, and one of them even got to steer the ship. I would totally recommend it. We were on the Heritage.
We had a great time! The weather was perfect and the sailing was quite exciting. Captain Kevin, Nate, and the other mate, a lovely young woman, were all terrific. We learned about the Bay, the ship, and sailing. Extremely enjoyable way to see the sights!
Columbia is THE gem of the ocean , and Cpt Kevin is a worthy and capable skipper. Wind blew 18 -20 kts; , we flew 8-10.
A real treat - everyone should cruise on a racing sailboat. Got to work the winches and pilot the boat.
I bought this as a surprise for my husband on our honeymoon. Worth every penny! I personally am terribly afraid of the water, but this was the smoothest, most fun thing I and #39;ve ever done. The crew was amazing and you could be all laid back or super into the sailing. I definitely recommend this!
My wife and I went up to Newport RI last weekend for our 25th Anniversary. I surprised my wife with this trip and it was fantastic! We spent 2 hours aboard the Heritage with Capt Gus, Jenny and Dunkin and they really made it enjoyable. The views were great, racing the Dolphins along side the Yacht as well as taking a turn at the Helm was awesome!! Would hightly recommend this trip!
Great sail! Captain and crew very accommodating! Would love to do it again
What a great time!! The crew was wonderful made this one of the best experiences. would highly recommended doing this. Love it.
This trip was booked for our 15 year old son and two 14 year old friends visiting from Costa Rica. They loved it. My son wants to take sailing lessons now. The crew were great. It seemed to me they were genuinely more interested in making sure everyone had a good time than worried about the money. Refreshing.
This was the best part of our family's trip to Newport. Kevin was our captain, he was friendly, informative, and easygoing. He offered to let my 10yo steer the sailboat. He was ecstatic! The sailboat was in fantastic condition, the day was perfect. I truly enjoyed seeing Newport from this vantage point. The check in process was easy, and the check in person was friendly and helpful in giving directions. It was a thrilling adventure.
Great people, outstanding views, and a wonderful experience. The effort went VERY WELL.
