Private Sails

Just you and the crew

Lyra off Clingstone

Our private charters are perfect for couples, small groups and families, proposals, small wedding groups, or a day trip. A day sailing tour with On Watch Sailing is the ultimate way to discover Newport, Narragansett Bay, and beyond. Do as much or as little as you like!

A 1.5 or 2-hour sail will take you by such notable landmarks as Fort Adams, Hammersmith Farm, Clingstone, and Castle Hill. On a longer sailing charter, see the Bellevue Mansions from the water, sail up to historic Bristol, circumnavigate Jamestown, or even anchor in an estuary for lunch. The choice is yours!

Of course, sipping your favorite beverage while watching the sunset over Jamestown the perfect way to finish your trip and to start your evening.
