Sailing & Charters
Newport, RI is considered the sailing capital of the world and was the home of the America's Cup for many years. Many of these America's Cup boats are still docked in Newport harbor and offer visitors a unique sailing charter opportunity. While cruising around the harbor, Narragansett Bay, and the ocean waters off Castle Hill, you will see a tremendous variety of sailboats and motor yachts from all over the world. With such a proliferation of classic vessels in the water, sometimes it seems as if you are in a floating museum of sailing history. If you get an opportunity, get on a boat of any type for an unforgettable view of Newport and the surrounding islands.
