Capt Green loves his job and is a great teacher. He taught us some sailing maneuvers and have us a great tour of the harbor. No trip to Newport is complete without a sail. Treat yourself to a sail, go with Captain Green

“Unforgettable experience!!”
Reviewed 26 August 2013 via mobile

Captain Green is a absolute class act, and very professional. He chartered my Girlfriend and I (which is now my fiancé after proposing on his sail boat) on the sunset cruise. The views were beautiful and Green also captured our special moment on camera. Totally recommend if you are in the Newport RI area and are looking for a romantic evening, we certainly are coming back!

“Loved Our Sail”
Reviewed 23 August 2013

Hands down our sail with Capt Green Brett was the best part of our Newport weekend. We had so much fun! Capt Green was so cool and we all really hit it off. He was also very knowledgable and answered all of the questions we had. He let us help as much or as little as we wanted too. We will definitely be back to Newport and back on the Lyra!!

“Great way to see and learn about Newport!”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

Wonderful afternoon of sailing for our family of 4 that included a 9 yo and 11 yo. Mom and Dad relaxed at the front of the boat while Green showed our children how to manage the ropes and steer us around. Everyone got to do exactly what they wanted. When the weather didn't cooperate, he had rain jackets handy and prorated our excursion when we had to go back early. I am prone to motion sickness, but the water was very smooth and I felt great.

I am glad you enjoyed your time with us on the water. It would have been nice to have a bigger weather window, but at least we go to see most of the sights in the area and to get some good sailing in!

“Beyond Expectations!”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

My Boys and I wanted a True sailing experience and Captain Green fully delivered! Both my sons had a wonderful lesson jibbing, tracking and steering the boat while I watched and took great pictures. They probably learned a full weeks worth of sailing lessons in 3 hours. I give Captain Green a 5 STAR RATING AND WILL DEFINITELY RETURN!
