Relaxing, stable and smooth sailing! Aquidneck is our largest boat; an elegant reproduction of a late 19th century coasting schooner that was designed and built specifically to carry guests in safety and comfort.
She is named after Aquidneck Island, the island on which Newport is located and is an Indian name meaning ‘Isle of peace’.
Aquidneck offers very steady, stable and smooth sailing. Queasiness is never an issue.
Sit back and relax as you take in the elegant varnished trim, traditional gaff rigging, coiled lines and 4 billowing sails of our 80 foot, turn-of-the century style schooner.
Wide, open decks provide plenty of space for moving about while chair-height cabin tops, and teak benches provide comfortable seating, space to relax and lounge.
Sail through historic Newport Harbor and into picturesque Narragansett Bay.
See Fort Adams, the largest coastal fort in the U.S., Goat Island, a WWII outpost, Hammersmith Farm, the former summer Whitehouse of JFK, Clingstone, an iconic house on an island, America’s Cup yachts, megayachts, lighthouses and more.
Light, informative commentary provided by friendly, knowledgeable, USCG licensed captain and crew.
