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.

Wonderful Sail

Attended: Newport Dark and Stormy Schooner Cocktail Sail
 
A perfect way to experience Newport! The Adirondack crew was amazing - young, confident sailors full of fun energy and hospitality. They had colorful stories to tell when we asked about this and that landmark - but were also happy to let us enjoy the smooth, relaxing sail. I would definitely do this again - and highly recommend to others!

Great time sailing in Newport

Attended: Newport Dark and Stormy Schooner Cocktail Sail
 
I very much enjoyed the cruise that I recommend strongly to anyone that would like to sail in Newport but may not like to do an all day sail. The price was good, words could not express how great the crew treated us; very friendly and knowledgeable of Newport. I am very impress and would sail again anytime. I enjoyed myself so much I was sad that the cruise was over; I wanted to stay out on the bay longer. You have my high marks.

Attended: Newport Dark and Stormy Schooner Cocktail Sail
 
We opted for this 4:45 tour versus the later sunset cruise and we were so glad we did... the boat was only partially full, the crew was friendly and attentive while making drinks and explaining what we were seeing. The boat is large and lovely with the sails flying. It is a relatively short tour and we did not go very far before turning around. Overall it was very pleasant. Upon our return we walked past the long line of people waiting to crowd onto the boat.
