This is a fun,fun,fun, sailing experiance -not for the faint of heart. I highly recommend you try to sail with Captain Cedar. She made the experiance even more special than it was.

It was a fabulous day to sail. The trip out was fun, everyone had a chance to pilot the boat and view the sights. On the way back the wind picked up and we were all on the edges of our seats literally. The crew was so good there was never a moment of concern. We had the best sail ever.

We did it as part of the cruise excursion, so we had a great morning sail. On their website, they only had evening tours. In any case, it was a bit more expensive since it was with the cruise, but it was a great experience. We had great wind and I got to participate in the actual sailing. We sailed through the water smoothly. Had a great time, lots of picture opportunities! We sailed by the Rose Island Lighthouse as well. So bonus, no need to visit separately.

We had the pleasure of sailing on the Columbia, which won the America's Cup in 1958. The crew was organized and friendly. My husband and I were able to help raise the sail! They offer the option to participate or you are more than welcome to just relax and enjoy the ride. We were fortunate to have perfect weather during our exciting, yet relaxing, sail. The crew is very friendly. This is quite a way to see Newport from the water. A truly special experience and highly recommended!

I booked this sail because I wanted to take some type of boat tour around Newport and I had never been on a sailboat. I told my husband we were taking a 2 hour sunset sail and he wasn't all that excited because he assumed it would be a boring sail (so did I but I just wanted to see the sights, was less concerned with adventure). Boy were we surprised!!! This sail was A BLAST...we had such an awesome time and it was simply gorgeous out there as well. I snapped some amazing pictures (I attached 2). The crew was entertaining as well! We are definitely going to bring the kids back to do this in a few years when they are old enough. We were on the Columbia and will request the same one again.
