    Experience Newport RI with us! - Charter "Hope San" Sailing Yacht

    I can’t stress enough how amazing this was! First off Patrick and his wife were the best hosts/captains. They told us a lot about the area while we were sailing and they made sure we were comfortable the entire trip. The boat is beautiful! Also it being Labor Day Weekend it was nice to just have the boat to ourselves away from the crowds! We got to watch the sunset on the boat and it’s probaly one of the best sunsets we’ve ever seen. I would recommend this experience to anyone!

    Great two days on the boat with Anthony! He's a terrifically experienced captain and an interesting, fun, nice guy. A really patient teacher too, as we hoped to learn a bit more about sailing. Super accommodating, wanted to do whatever we wanted and was really invested in making sure we had a good time. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

    Enjoy Fishing In Gloucester, Massachusetts With Captain Dana

    Great trip! Captain Dana took us to a school of pogies where we snagged a bunch to use as bait and then caught three large stripers, all in the 38" range. Dana is an interesting guy who also patiently answered all our questions about the fishing industry, Gortons, and life in Cape Ann in general. He's been the area his entire life and has his captain's license. We felt confident we were in good hands.
