Extremely enjoyable 90 minute narrated harbor cruise. The boat was comfortable and we sat upstairs and had a great view. John is well informed and has a nice manner of sharing the information about Newport's history and the sites. It was fun to see the...More
I took a sailing trip on the Aquidneck Sailing. Greeted with a smile and a loving sense of humor. Stacey, Josh and Kevin were wonderful. They told very good stories in regards to the history of Mansions, Kennedys etc. It was a 10:30 sail and...More
My Wife & I took The Gansett for a Sunset tour this past September.
It was the most perfect evening. Great staff on an immaculate boat, taking an informative tour of the harbor. Amazing yachts docked in the harbor was just the beginning.
The cruise was excellent, the weather perfect, John the tour guide provided so much interesting information about the history of Newport. The only advice I would give to anyone, if there is a bachelorette party on board, don't sit near them. Find another seat. Understandably...More
My husband and I enjoyed this cruise. The director had a lot of information for us. History of the buildings. We have grown up here in RI and I had never done this before. It is definitely something we will do again.
We got lucky that this place still has spots for 6 on the sunset cruise during Labor day weekend. Boarding is at Bowen’s wharf.. or you can google Gansett and map it there. They suggest arriving 30 mins before boarding as people started lining up...More

I am sorry,I really can't recall what the fee was but if it as really expensive I am sure I would have remembered. Things do cost a little more there but,that's par for the area. As for the time of year, I would personally go at a little warmer time, like middle of Sept (it was great) or early Oct. It tends to be cooler up there than middle eastern us or south. Hope that helps. Enjoy!
