Come Sail Aboard

If you’re yearning for adventure and eager to feel the wind in your hair and the sun on your face, it’s time to experience the wanderlust that sailing the waters of Newport Harbor provides. 


Glide down the channel and take in breathtaking sights, capture glimpses of sea life and marine animals, and learn more about the hidden celebrity homes scattered along the channel shores with the captain as your guide. Sit back, relax, and revel in the serenity of the sail as we take care of everything.

Lively Schooner Classic Sailing Yachts

The Schooner Sailing Yacht

Lively is a 1976 classic sailing yacht that has spent most of her life in Newport Harbor, spending her days with the wind in her five sails, waves splashing upon her emerald green hull, and joyous laughter filling her cockpit.

The Pirate Ship

The Mayflower is a 1960 Angelman Topsail Ketch sailing vessel made almost entirely of teak. With up to seven sails catching the wind and her smooth sailing abilities when taking on swells, Mayflower makes the perfect choice for overnight charters to Catalina Island.

“This is one amazing experience,  Andrew is a great sailor and the ride is SO fun,
Once you try a sailing boat you'll never wanna get on the ones with engines,
Thanks Andrew it was such a good time”
