Sail Newport!

Welcome aboard New England’s Premier Private Sailing Charter. Captains Linda Perry Riera and Bob Damiano welcome you aboard Argon for an exhilarating or relaxing sail on Narragansett Bay! Newport Sailing is some of the best in the world, and would love to share it with you! We offer sightseeing harbor tours aboard our high performance Tartan 4000 Sloop Argon. We’re proud of the fact that we’ve turned several first-time sailors into life-long sailing enthusiasts after sailing with us. Book a Newport Sailing Tour today!

COVID-19 Policy

WE TAKE COVID-19 VERY SERIOUSLY. For the 2020 Season, we will be booking limited charters in the Newport, RI / Narragansett Bay Area only. Passengers must follow the local Mask Wearing Mandates while in the area of the docks and on the launch boat going to and from Argon. We are very dismayed that our state has recently reached infection thresholds such that neighboring states are placing travel restrictions on us. We don’t want to be part of the problem and we want to do our part to reverse this trend.

Passengers must be from a single household and we will limit the number of passengers to four. Onboard, you may remove masks if you like. If you wish us to continue wearing them, we will gladly do so.

Any Sailing Experience Level

Whether you’ve never been on the water before or are an experienced sailor, we’re sure you will have a memorable time. Our captained charters are private for your group only – the whole ship is yours! We encourage our passengers to become part of the crew by participating in the sailing and we are happy to share our experience and teach new sailors some basics along the way. Trim sails, or take the helm or just relax as we enjoy the bay among the racing sloops with Newport Bridge as the backdrop.

We are a couple of sailing geeks who love introducing others to this amazing experience. We tailor the sailing to your comfort and experience, and teach you as much as you want to learn along the way. If you prefer to just sit back, relax and take in the sights, that’s fine too. Please join us for a sail around Newport and Narragansett Bay as we share our love of sailing.

Praise from our Awesome Passengers

Boston from the Harbor
My parents came to visit and were delighted to experience Boston from the Harbor side. We had a three hour trip and got all the way around Spectacle Island. Bob and Linda were lovely and very knowledgeable. We all got to steer and help orient the main sail. My parents are definitely coming back to sail again and some of my friends were interested in a expedition as well.
