The Madeleine is by far my favorite. We've been in the summer and fall. The captain and crew are experienced, knowledgeable and very accommodating. It's a beautiful sailing experience. I highly recommend!

Went with a group of 15 friends on the first cool day of fall and it was delightful. The crew kept us warm with blankets and refreshed with beverages. They kept us safe and made the cruise a very enjoyable experience.

Low key, knowledgable crew attended to the sails as we relaxed on deck on a sunny afternoon. It was not scary, as we sipped the provided ice tea while sailing in the Newport Bay.

With a group of friends we embarked on the schooner Madeleine for a sunset cruise in Narragansett Bay. The evening and the sail were absolutely marvellous. The crew were professional, friendly and attentive. It was amazing!
