We have three sailing vessels, all of which may be chartered for private sails. To book a private charter, determine the number of people in your party and choose a boat whose capacity is closest to your number of guests.
Sightsailer: Maximum capacity 13 guests. $540 for a private 1.5 hour cruise. $595 at sunset. See Sightsailer schedule and call 401 619-0202 to book.
Aquidneck: Maximun capacity 49. See Aquidneck schedule and call John Hirschler at 401 862 4718 for rates and booking details.
Note that the capacity numbers are determined by the Coast Guard and cannot be exceeded under any circumstance. The Coast Guard considers every human being on the boat to be a person regardless of age, so an infant counts the same as an adult in the guest count.
After you determine which boat fits your group, look at the schedule of departures in each boats' Schedules & Rates section, to choose one of the scheduled departures as your private charter departure time.
