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.

WOW! It was truly an honor to be your first sail of the season. For our first trip to Newport, you have exceeded our expectations and made our 4th annual girls trip one we will remember forever. Thank you for the knowledge and hospitality, the snacks and you are welcome for the awesome music.

This is truly an example of an amazing local business and if we only had one more day here, this is exactly how we would spend it.

Beautiful evening sunset

We had the most wonderful time on the boat with Captain Al and Kia! They were the best hosts and were very accommodating. I would recommend this trip to anyone living or visiting Newport and looking for a unique experience.

Thank you for making our 25th anniversary one we will always cherish! From the secluded nature spot to the beautiful “special occasion spinnaker”, we loved every minute.  Thank you for your wonderful hospitality!

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!
