Please be on time. We recommend checking in at least 20 minutes prior to departure. If you are late for a public sail, we will not be able to hold the boat for you since we have a schedule to adhere to and can’t keep other guests waiting. If you miss the boat, there is no refund.

On weekends and during special events, Newport can get quite crowded. Allow yourself and any other members of your party plenty of time to park and get to the boat.

We are located at 32 Bowen’s Wharf. Bowen’s Wharf is on America’s Cup Avenue in the heart of downtown Newport.
