Sailing Cruise

My husband and I will be in Newport next week ,we want to do a harbour cruise. Do you recomend the Adirondack II or the Acquidneck. We wanted the smaller starlight but it does not sail on Tuesday.We want a morning cruise. Don't want to spend the money on a private charter but also would like to be in a smaller group.

Both are almost the same....same sort of boat, Adirondack II looks a little bit more traditional (older) but both go on about the same tour loop. I'd just walk around and see which one looks like they have a friendlier crew that day...

I have chartered the Starlight and have sailed on the Aquidneck. I have found that company to be very nice and easy to deal with. Their booth is right on Bowens dock.

I did notice Adorondack II has great reviews on Trip Advisor. I have not sailed either personally, though.
