Sunset cruises in Newport are spectacular! There is no better place in Newport to view the sunset than the deck of our boats, sailing and sipping champagne while watching the sun go down! Sunset Sails on Aquidneck and Sightsailer include complimentary champagne, beer and water.*
On sunset sails the sky is often ablaze with color, including fiery reds and oranges. At the end of the day Newport’s southwesterly breeze tends to moderate. As the sun sets, the bridge’s necklace lighting starts to twinkle. Sunset cruises are a great way to wrap up your day and start your evening in Newport.
On all of our sailing cruises, you’ll get great views of Fort Adams, the Pell Bridge, Hammersmith Farm (the former summer Whitehouse of JFK), Clingstone (the house on a rock) and yachts from all over the world. Your captain and crew will point out the sights and provide light, informative commentary.
We recommend buying tickets in advance as sunset sails are one of our most popular cruises and frequently sell out. Evenings can be cool on the water. We have blankets, however we recommend a sweater or top even in the summer. Long pants are recommended early and late in the season.

*Although complimentary champagne and beer are included in your ticket price, our sails are not booze cruises. We will serve a couple of rounds but we aim to create a peaceful, relaxing, safe and friendly atmosphere for all of our guests to enjoy.
