Captain Charles was the best! the boat was very clean and ran so smoothly. Charles was a great captain and had a wealth of knowledge about Newport and surrounding area. he was so wonderful with our children too! We will definitely be coming back for another trip with Charles!!!
Charles and Vanessa were the perfect hosts for our charter. Very personable, friendly and all around great people. The boat is immaculate and comfy. It was the perfect way to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Recommend to everyone. Couldn’t be happier. THANK YOU FOR A GREAT EXPERIENCE !!!
I highly recommend Christian’s Downeast Lobster Motor Yacht. This boat has plenty of room and a lot of character. We were very glad we picked this boat over the other typical speed boats for our daylong tour. Christian gave us a wonderful experience and an excellent tour of the area. I would definitely book Christian’s boat again.
We had a fabulous time out on the water with Tony and his first mate, Lisa. The boat, company and experience were first rate and we were lucky enough to have great sailing conditions. We would recommend to others without hesitation.
The Captain contacted me immediately after i posted my interest on the app. Exchanged a couple of messages and i arranged the payment through the app, which was efficient and secure. The day of the sail we were met right on time and took only a short walk to get on the boat. Once we were aboard we sit back and enjoy the sail. We felt very comfortable and,above all, we felt safe as we knew we were in the good hands of an experienced sailor, which also happened to be a very friendly and interesting person. No doubt I will sail with him on my next visit to Newport.
Anthony and his partner were amazing and so accommodating!! Our time was so fun- filled with stories and a wonderful time. You can bring snacks and drinks too!! Would definitely recommend over a sailing excursion if you want more of a private sailing experience especially with covid still going on! Thank you for a wonderful time, Anthony!! We will sure be back!
