    The Captain contacted me immediately after i posted my interest on the app. Exchanged a couple of messages and i arranged the payment through the app, which was efficient and secure. The day of the sail we were met right on time and took only a short walk to get on the boat. Once we were aboard we sit back and enjoy the sail. We felt very comfortable and,above all, we felt safe as we knew we were in the good hands of an experienced sailor, which also happened to be a very friendly and interesting person. No doubt I will sail with him on my next visit to Newport.

    Had an awesome time with Tony and Nancy celebrating our wedding anniversary. Tony was super responsive, accommodating, worked with our itenary. If you have kids, you cannot find a nicer crew than this. Tony was engaged with our 12 and 7 year old kids the whole trip and we all learned so much about sailing and history. Thank you for a wonderful time!

    Captain Anthony provided an amazing experience from start to finish! He accommodated our pick-up location for an easy pick-up right near our Airbnb. We went out on an amazing two hour sunset cruise and he positioned the boat perfectly for us to relax and watch the sun go down. He was very informative and knowledgable, but also respectful of giving the group our own time to hang out. I would book again with Anthony in a heart beat and look forward to future boat rides in Newport with Captain Anthony!
