Sailing Excursions Inc. of Newport (Rhode Island), located in Bowen's Wharf, currently operates the 1890's style pilot schooner the Adirondack II, which is available for tours and excursions in the Newport Harbor.

The Adirondack II is an 80-foot sail vessel built in the tradition of the pilot schooners that were popular around the end of the 19th century. Back then, pilot schooners patrolled the major New England harbors, waiting for tall ships coming into port. Upon their arrival, the pilot schooner would sail up to meet them and deposit a "pilot" aboard these ships. The pilot would then assist in navigating the ship to safe harbor.

These days the Adirondack II is helping tourists and local sight-seers navigate the shores of Newport, guiding them to the most beautiful scenery between land and sea.

Join us for a gorgeous day or night sail aboard Adirondack II, where you'll experience Newport like you never have before.

Awesome Sunset Sail!

Attended: Sunset Sail on the Schooner Adirondack II
 
Our Captain & crew were awesome. He and his crew were very personable and friendly. They were funny and knowledgeable with facts of the surroundings. Some of us even got to steer the ship. Our girl Kayla loved steering the ship and she even made friends too! If your planning a trip to Newport, I highly recommend the Sunset Sail on the Schooner Adirondak! Thanks Mark, Colin and crew for making our trip memorable!

Attended: Newport Dark and Stormy Schooner Cocktail Sail
 
Weather was terrible, no wind ended up using a motor to get back and we went in a circle the entire time. I heard multiple people ask while on the ride when we would be returning to the dock.
 
Sailing Excursions, Inc. responded:
Thank you for sailing with us Saturday. It is unfortunate that I don't have control over is the weather, as I would order sun with 10-15 knots out of the SW everyday. The wind did die down during that sail, and there was nothing the captain could do but turn on what we call the iron sail. You were still out on the water on Narragansett Bay and I hope you were at least able to enjoy the sites and narration by our crew.
