    1. Can we bring our own food or drink on board?
      You may bring your own food on board, but personal drinks may not be brought on board.  Both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages are available for purchase on board.
    2. Is this a "booze cruise"?
      No.  While alcoholic beverage are available for purchase and the crew will be serving a few rounds, this in not an unlimited "booze cruise".  Your crew aims to create an elegant, relaxing and peaceful experience for all guests to enjoy.
    3. Am I likely to get seasick?
      The Adirondack II is a steady, gentle vessel.  It is rare for passengers to become seasick.  However, if you historically experience seasickness while sailing you may want to explore taking some type of motion sickness medication.
    4. What exactly do we see on the sail?
      While each sail may differ due to wind and other conditions, the captain tries to follow the following route: heading south out of Newport Harbor, Schooner Adirondack II passes by a 19th century fort. She then sails out to Castle Hill Light House while passing stately waterfront mansions and seven different yacht clubs. You will enjoy fantastic views of the Newport waterfront on the way back to Bowen's Wharf.
    5. Is there any narration on the sail?
      There will be light narration on the sail. The captain and crew will give you some information about the sights you see along the way, but this is a relaxing, leisurely sail on Narragansett Bay.
    6. Is the Schooner Adirondak II safe?
      Absolutely. While known for her speed, the Schooner Adirondack II is a safe and gentle vessel. Along with your captain, there is a minimum of two crew members on every sail to make sure you feel comfortable and at home on the water. Water, beverages, blankets, pillows and life jackets are available should you feel you need one. There is also a private marine head (bathroom) and salon below deck.
    7. Is there a bathroom on the boat?
      Yes, the boat is equipped with a bathroom that is accessible at all times. It's called a "marine head" and it is unlike the bathroom you use at home. It involves pumping and there are simple instructions posted in the bathroom on how to use it.
    8. Can I stow my belongings during the sail?
      There is an area below deck where you may store your belongings. Please keep in mind that this area is not guarded and the crew cannot take responsibility for any broken, lost or missing items.
