Sunset Cruises in Newport, RI are stunning and a terrific way to wrap up your day and start your evening! Come aboard, sit back, and relax aboard our comfortable 80′ schooner Aquidneck.
Aquidneck is named after Aquidneck Island, the island on which Newport is located, so when visiting Newport and Aquidneck Island, a sail on Aquidneck is a must! Sunset Cruises are romantic and available on all three of our sailboats- Aquidneck, Sightsailer, and Starlight.
Watching the sunset from the deck of one of our boats while sipping your favorite beverage and viewing spectacular sights is often the highlight of a visit to Newport! On sunset cruises, Newport’s sky often turns from a bright, sunny blue, to orange and violet, laced with red.
Sailing back into the harbor, the entire waterfront is bathed in warm, golden light, and waterfront windows are ablaze with reflections of the sun.
Of course, every sail is different, and although we can’t guarantee you a fiery, red ball and green flash as the sun sinks beneath the horizon, Newport sunset cruises can be spectacular! Newport’s sea breeze often starts to moderate towards sunset, so if you’re looking for a calmer and more leisurely cruise, a sunset cruise should fit the bill.
