      I had a free day in the city and was looking for a tour. This was perfect! Cute shop and easy-to-access boat. Great history stories. Along the way we asked about the firewood stored under the bridges and ended up watching the Waterfire celebration that evening along the river. That was special, too.

      Waterfire Providence Delivered
      I’ve wanted to experience the Providence Waterfire for years. The staff (especially Kristen) and crew at Providence River Boat Company were personable and very responsive to my questions. The weather (October) could not have been nicer; the music playlist was great; and the fire entertainers were awesome! The total experience matched my expectations!

      Worth the try!
      This was a great way to experince Rhode Island. This tour lasts about a hour and you get a great history lesson from the boat guide. We took the first ride out of the day on a Sunday and it was awesome just us and two other couples. After the ride was over the guide gave us a great place to go and eat and it was the best food of our trip hands down.

      Unique and Amazing View of Providence
      During Waterfire, we decided to take an impromptu ride on the Providence RiverBoat. Our host was extremely accommodating in her ability to fit us in to an upcoming ride, and I was able to enjoy it with my guest and her two young children that came to visit the city for the weekend. I would highly recommend taking a trip on the boat, and will likely return to do this during the daytime, so that I can hear some of the explanations of architecture and historic sites along the Providence River

    Nice clean boat, friendly staff. Stories were enlightening if you are into the history of the region. I did learn about one of the authors I enjoyed as a kid (Edgar Allen Poe) , but lacked some scares I was hoping for. Parking was great for the Sunday evening. But I would have appreciated a better sign on the building. Kayak rentals is not the same as Providence boat cruises

    This tour is on a pontoon boat with a great boat captain and Kelly your tour guide!! Loved being on the water and hearing those great stories. Kelly has a great story telling presence and really captivates you with her stories. The captain was also entertaining with his stories of transformation of the city. If you don’t want to walk and hear ghost stories then the boat ride is for you. Really enjoyed our time on the river. I would suggest you bring along a light jacket as it does get breezy on the water. There are a few steps you must be able to do and you do walk on a floating dock.

    I had the pleasure of being on the first Haunted Boat Tour. Captain Peter and our guide, Kelly were wonderful! Both were very knowledgeable, with great stories to tell. Beautiful ride on the river, learning some of the eerie history of Providence. Thanks for a fun night!

    I was on the providence River Haunted Boat Tour this past Wednesday! The captain and guide were fantastic! It was so interesting to hear about the haunted history of the city! My favorite part though was the view of the city at night from the river! Absolutely beautiful! I only wish it was longer with more stories!

    Thanks so much for joining us for one of our Haunted Boat Tours! They're new this year, so we love the feedback. As we are fine-tuning the tours this first season, we may consider making them longer next year, but for now the hour trip seems to work. Your input is very helpful, however! And we agree, the view of Providence from the boats at night is so beautiful! Thanks again, we really appreciate your review!

    The boat ride was fun and calming. Not very thrilling or "spooky" but it was fun to hear the ghost stories/ legends of the area. Our narrator was also charmastic.

    My daughter and I enjoyed this tour very much. Kelly was a great storyteller, the city was pretty, and it was relaxing to be on the water. It was a bit overpriced, but isn't everything these days.
