Narragansett Bay offers over 140 square miles of protected sailing waters to cruise in. Many historic harbors including Bristol, RI and Wickford RI, line the bay. Just south of Newport lie four lovely islands, Hope, Patience, Prudence and Despair. These along with Conanicut Island locally known as Jamestown offer many protected harbors to drop the anchor and enjoy the peace and serenity of a beautiful New England day.
Come aboard in Newport Rhode Island, the “Sailing Capital of the World”! Take some time to view the famous mansions along Ocean Road, former summer residence of the likes of the Vanderbilts and the Astors. Walk the famed Cliff Walk. Perhaps visit the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Or sail in company of the old America’s Cup contenders. Watch them relive their glory days racing around Narragansett Bay! Catch dinner ashore one night in one of the many award winning restaurants. Take in a film or show at the various community theaters in either Newport, Martha’s Vineyard, or Nantucket. And for those who like to shop, you can find the most interesting art, antiques and crafts throughout Newport, and all within walking distance from our berth. While sailing around Newport, we also travel to parts of Cape Cod.
A typical cruise will see you sailing the magnificent schooner into such fascinating ports as Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, Narragansett Bay, and Block Island. While docked in Martha’s Vineyard, explore and dine in Vineyard Haven and Oak Bluffs or shop the upscale stores of Edgartown. For a quiet evening we have many choices to anchor in coves and harbors you may have never heard of, yet you will never forget them. In these places the stars can be seen against a pitch black background revealing an entirely expanded universe. Fish or swim and enjoy the rapture of being aboard a majestic tall ship engulfed by nature and nature alone.
