Public Sails

Sunset Cruises

Sunset cruises in Newport are spectacular! There is no better place in Newport to view the sunset than sailing and sipping champagne while watching the sun go down!

Enjoy complimentary champagne and beer aboard Aquidneck and Sightsailer on sunset sails, (or book a Private Charter to enjoy sunset with just your group).  A sunset cruise is a great way to wrap up your day and start your evening in Newport.

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.

On all of our sunset 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.

Evenings can be cool on the water.  There are blankets, but we recommend a sweater or top even in the summer.  We suggest long pants early and late in the season.

We recommend buying tickets in advance as sunset sails are one of our most popular cruises and frequently sell out.

*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.
