    4 or 8 Hour Sails on Narragansett Bay on Seafarer Swiftsure Yacht!

    Wonderful old boat, with everything you need for a day sail or an evening picnic (like we did). Joe is super knowledgeable, and my husband had an awesome time learning about sailing and getting to steer. I was able to take some great pictures around the harbor and bay.

    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.
