If you are looking for a harbor tour this is great. The boat is comfortable and roomy, w beverages available on board and the narrator did a great job of pointing out the sites and history on every step of the tour. Unfortunately we booked this more for the sunset cruise aspect for my bday and I was very disappointed to realize that on their sunset tour I did not actually catch one glimpse of the sun. I even asked about this when I called to make the reservation as the time seemed very late to begin a sunset tour but was assured by the woman over the phone we would get to enjoy the sunset. Sadly we did not. You have to be in line on the dock by 7pm where you can not see the sun from. The boat then loads and again your view of the sunset is blocked. By the time this cruise actually starts at 7:15 the sun has already set and you have actually missed the entire thing. So disappointing as we booked this to see one of the legendary Newport sunsets. They really need to stop advertising this as a sunset tour. Overall we did enjoy the harbor tour and if that is what you are looking for this is definitely the way to go.

This was a really enjoyable experience! You can sit topside and enjoy the breeze or sit in the shade on the main level. Both the captain and our tour’s narrator had great personalities and were a pleasure to spend time with. We learned so much about the history of the area as well as interesting tidbits about current day happenings. This tour is great for all ages. We are happy we followed up on a positive recommendation and would definitely recommend this activity to others.

Newport is one of the best small places to visit if you're in RI. I recommend the Amazing Grace as one of many family fun activities to do because you'll get to see picturesque views of the harbor and sometimes when I come to ride, I'll have my own snack bar for sale. I sell a variety of snacks that most of you would like and I only charge $1-$2 each for them so if you're in the area visiting, stop by and come visit me at my snack bar and I'll make you feel right at home while enjoying a cruise on Newport Harbor.
