Overview

We sail from early May to Mid October. Our spacious 80' pilot schooner can take as many as 57 guests sailing on Narragansett Bay. During the summer months we go out 5 times daily, starting at 11 AM, for 1.5 hour sails. Our boat is Coast Guard certified and equipped with 2 rest rooms. Sit back, relax and enjoy the quiet beauty of the coastal scenery while the wind fills the sails.

We shy away for overly touristy things, especially when they are crowded and involve a lot of alcohol. So when my daughter gave us a romantic sunset cruise aboard the Schooner Adirondack II for a Father's Day gift, I sighed deeply. I'm happy to report...More
