Sailing, Yachting, & Naval History

Experience the sailing capital of the world.

Newport is the sailing capital of the world with a glorious history of America’s Cup competitions, and the home of numerous regattas and ocean-traversing races. Newport has long been an important location for the U.S. Navy. The history of the Navy aligns closely with the birth and establishment of the nation. Some of our most famous Navy men and women served, were born here, or are buried here, including the Perrys, Oliver and Matthew. You will visit notable America’s Cup locations, see the Navy’s presence including the Naval War College and tour its Museum; and see the site of the U.S. Naval Academy moved here during the Civil War. Newport is also the destination of some of the largest yachts in the world and you may be lucky enough to catch a view of some of them. The Herreshoff Museum where most of the historic America’s Cup yachts were built is also an option. This is a three-hour tour, morning or afternoon.

The Tour season is April to Nov. 15.
