Great way to get to Newport in the busy summer months. Take the family over to a Gulls game, girls night out on the town without having to drive or Uber, or an afternoon of sightseeing the different islands in Narragansett Bay.

It's a shame to ever visit Newport/Jamestown without spending any time on Narragansett Bay. The Jamestown and Newport Ferry Co. provides a highly enjoyable and low cost way to spend time on the water. Buy the all day pass and jump on/off as you like....More

From Jamestown you can stop at Rose Island, Fort Adam, St. Ann Pier and Perroti Park. Our guide pointed out important points along the way so it was as good as a harbor cruise. Discounts for rides after 4:00pm.

Old boat extremely uncomfortable. The captain was the most unpersonable individual. He treated his mate like trash in front of the customers. Won't take that trip again.
