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.

Attended: Newport Dark and Stormy Schooner Cocktail Sail
 
We enjoyed the sail, but were disappointed that dark and stormy's were not available because they ran out of rum.
 
Sailing Excursions, Inc. responded:
I'm glad you enjoyed our sail, and I apologize that we ran out of rum on the dark and stormy sail. It's no excuse to say our delivery day is Tuesday and I miscalculated the popularity of the drink, but please let me know if you are back in Newport and we'll give you and a guest another dark and stormy sail with our compliments. I will make certain that doesn't happen again this season.

Attended: Sunset Sail on the Schooner Adirondack II
 
We had a wonderful time on the sunset cruise! The check in process was easy and the crew was very friendly! I especially liked our female captain! She was a pro despite rude and sexist comments from some of the other customers. Shocking, a female captain! The only downside was the loud chatter of other costumes that drowned out the historical facts the crew was sharing. I would recommend this to anyone!
