Sail Narragansett Bay

Bowens Wharf, Newport, RI 02840, USA

Between Newport’s America’s Cup sailing history and the sight of sunlight sparkling on blue Narragansett Bay, it’s hard to resist the urge to get out on the water. Cruises and sailing lessons are widely available in the wharf area downtown, some even aboard America’s Cup yachts. Choose a level of participation that suits you—some cruises allow you to help the crew, while others ask little more than that you wear a life vest and enjoy the exhilarating experience of sailing the bay.
