Newport without Lyra and Captain Green is like Christmas without presents! Just the BEST Captain out there and an understated GORGEOUS safe boat. We have sailed with Captain Green 2 years in a row and still cannot get enough. Truly the most accommodating, accomplished, professional...More

Last weekend we did the sunset cruise. Captain Green was great, very engaged with the entire family. The Lyra is a Ketch (he taught us) with an interesting history. Definitely worth doing.

Do they play music while the boat is out? If so, what kind?

Response from g8brett | Property representative |
All sails at On Watch are private. If you would like to stream music on Lyra's Bluetooth speaker with your device you are welcome to, but it's entirely up to you.

$290 for a very nice and informative 2 hour sail. it was a very nice time. Capt. Green also let me take the helm. It is also customary to tip 15-20%. He is well worth it! Enjoy.
