Green and Lyra were provided a great experience during a sunset sail last weekend. I had been wanting to get out on a larger keel boat for a while and refresh my skills. My girlfriend made booked us and another couple on a sunset cruise, and arranged for me to take the helm and practice some of my sailing skills. It was a wonderful trip, filled with beautiful sights,weather, and history enjoyed by sailors and non-sailors equally. I would very much recommend Green and Lyra to any who are searching for the sailing experience or just a beautiful way to see Newport.

Three couples took to Newport Harbor on Lyra this past weekend for a wonderful afternoon sail. We brought drinks and snacks and Captain Green provided the rest. It was the perfect summer afternoon in Newport. There is so much to see -- the mansions, lovely homes, other gorgeous sailboats, beautiful coastline. Green provided some history and info along the way and allowed up to help (Or not help) as much as we wanted.

A highly recommended experience!

This was a top notch day trip. Captain Green was warm, friendly, and full of knowledge about local lore and historic places in the area. This was am amazing day of laid back sailing. IF you want to help with the rigging you can, or just sit up front and enjoy the breeze. My husband stired the boat with a huge smile on his face. It was priced right for the area.

Thank you for the great review! One of my favorite spots on Lyra is up on deck, where you can relax to the sound of the boat cutting through the water. On recent trips this spot has been the best place to be while a lively pod of white-sided Atlantic dolphins played next to us. Thank you for coming sailing!

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

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!
