we paid $10 each for this ride all day service WOW!! Under 12 year olds pay $6 - what a bargain. You can jump on and off all day long as this lovely boat travels from stop to stop in the gorgeous harbour location. The loop of stops takes 55 minutes between the hours of 11:00 hrs and 18:00 hrs...

An inexpensive way to see Newport and its environs from the sea. Our 'captain' gave an excellent commentary of our surroundings as we motored around the bay. You can jump off at any stop and catch the next boat. Although the company advertise running every hour, they had put another boat on during our visit.

Save your money by taking this $10 harbor shuttle instead of paying triple the price for other sight-seeing cruises. The shuttle captains are very knowledgeable and willing to point out the highlights and harbor history. We loved the ease of hopping on and off and the short waiting times between shuttles. Do it!

For $10.00 you can ride around the harbor all day. You can hop on and off as many times as you like. Our Captain was so friendly and informative. It was one of the most relaxing things we have experienced in Newport..

Get around Newport by water..? What's not to like. It's reasonably priced and the wait is never long. Enjoy the harbor scenery as you get from point to point in Newport.

This shuttle is a tremendous service. For $10 per day you can ride all day! it has stops at 2 piers, Bannister Wharf, Goat Island, and Fort Adams. They stamp your hand so that you can hop off and on as needed. One of the shuttles stops by about every 15 minutes or so. You can also take a round... More

We used the shuttle if we wanted to go somewhere that we couldn't walk. The captains were always friendly and had good advice about things to do and places to eat. Very reasonably priced.

This is only $10.00 per person and $6.00 for a child. Takes you around harbor so you can use it as a tour or transportation or both. And you only pay once and can access it all day! Totally worth the money. Captain was great, friendly with funny stories of the area.
