Patrick was a fantastic host and the entire journey was very fun. I highly recommend it!
Couldn't have asked for a better trip. Patrick and Monika were very accomodating and easy-going. The boat was beautiful and just what my friends and I were looking for this Labor Day weekend. We even got to jump off and swim! If we're ever in Newport again, I already know where I'm spending my Saturday. Thanks again guys for a great time.
The sail was absolutely amazing. Patrick and Monika could not have been nicer and the sail boat is beautiful. We had a group of four and there was plenty of room for us to lounge around and enjoy Narraganset bay. I can't wait to do it again!
