People are Talking…

We’re always eager to hear what our guests have to say about their sailing experience on AlyKat. We’re confident that if you sail with us, you too will agree that NewportKat is the premiere catamaran charter in Newport.

Newport Kat is incredible! I rented the boat with my 4 of my closest friends and we had the MOST AMAZING time! Kia and Al are wonderful people and we are grateful they shared their boat with us. We can’t wait to come back.

The AlyKat is truly an unforgettable experience and a MUST TRY while in Newport!!! My husband and I did a 2.5 hour trip that we booked a day or two in advanced. Kia and Al were the kindest hosts – very accommodating, knowledgeable and experienced!! Watching them sail the catamaran literally took my breath away. Their knowledge and experience of sailing was awesome. They brought us to a really cool area where we were able to whip out the paddle board and go for a swim. They have all the amenities you could ever imagine… even a grill in the back if you want to make lunch! Our ride on the AlyKat made our entire vacation and allowed us to experience Newport on the water. We plan to go again and bring our families out with us on our next trip to Newport.

Great day out at sea. Our son took his first trip on a boat at 1.5 years.  We had a fabulous time and loved our Captains!

A great day on the water! I am a sailor myself and was looking for a sailing opportunity, and I found a great one! Gracious hosts, a lovely boat, and true sailing skill. I can wholeheartedly recommend!

We had a wonderful one day sail with Kia and Al on August 27th. The weather was perfect, the boat was clean and comfortable, and the hosts were gracious, knowledgeable, and fun. At lunch we bought all kinds of fresh seafood, and Kia and Al not only cooked but also insisted on cleaning the dishes. It was truly a five-star experience. I cannot wait to sail with them again next year. If you are in Newport, it’s a must-have-experience.
