Setting sail in Spring 2015, Golden Goose is a 40-foot schooner laid out in the classic style. The little sister to Starbound, she is perfect for smaller groups exploring Narragansett Bay and beyond.

Our ships offer unforgettable fun on the open water, along with lessons of seamanship, such as boat handling, navigation and safety. Every charter is packed with exciting and educational activities for scouts and other young explorers.
