    Cruising Catamaran for Charter in Newport, RI

    Kia was extremely communicative prior to the weekend of the boat outing. Even through a bad / rainy weekend forecast she was willing to be flexible about the time of the trip. They were extremely friendly and great company. I will definitely be recommending to friends in the future

    Rent this Bertram Boat in Newport, RI

    110% recommend. Excellent overall experience with zero complaints or criticisms! Andrew is experienced, professional, affable and his boat is not only pristine and clean but has an awesome story behind it. Only way you’ll be privy to that story is by hiring him as your captain!! He knows the local waters and history, and is a great guide for whatever experience you’re looking for. We’re heading back to Newport in a month and already have him booked again. Total no-brainer 🤙🏻

    42' Sailboat "J/42 Affinity" Cruising Monohull Sailing Charter in Newport, Rhode Island

    Captain Anthony provided an amazing experience from start to finish! He accommodated our pick-up location for an easy pick-up right near our Airbnb. We went out on an amazing two hour sunset cruise and he positioned the boat perfectly for us to relax and watch the sun go down. He was very informative and knowledgable, but also respectful of giving the group our own time to hang out. I would book again with Anthony in a heart beat and look forward to future boat rides in Newport with Captain Anthony!
