Andrew:
Sailing is my passion, my life and my career! I caught the sailing bug at the age of eleven and have been at it ever since! I grew up in the Sea Scouts program, raced for my High School's Sailing Team all four years of school, and taught sailing (even directed the sailing program) for ten years before completing my captain's license and starting my own sailing excursion business. I love being on the water and sharing that experience with others!

Missy:
I've spent the last 18 years working in restaurants and coffee shops, but sailing captured my heart and now I can't give it up! Captain Andrew taught me everything I know, and will soon be sending me to get my Captain's License so I can continue sharing my newfound love of being out on the water.

If your interested taking a boat this is the trip. The boat(Lively) is very unique and smoothe sailing. Capt Andrew will tell you about the history of the harbor and it's very interesting inhabitants. The tip is very relaxing while the views are breath taking. This trip is an excellent choice for couples or individuals looking for a new experience. Have fun...;)

Andrew is a walking encyclopedia with regards to the Newport Harbor area. Pick out a boat or house and chances are Andrew will tell you something interesting about it. He also is very knowledgeable about sailing. He has taught sailing for years. Ride was smoother than I expected even outside the harbor. Didn't get as cold as I thought, even at sunset. Just a light jacket will do. Very memorable experience.

Captain Andrew was awesome. He gave us the history of Newport harbor and was very informative of some the residents that live in the harbor, both past and present. His boat was very comfortable and a beautiful ride around the harbor and into the ocean. This was for my husband’s birthday and he enjoyed it very much.

We had a wonderful time with Captain Andrew on his boat! He was very knowledgeable about the history of the area and his sailing skills are amazing. We were on the water for three hours but it barely seemed like an hour. It was a pleasure to ride on his beautiful boat.
