Owner description: Gansett Cruises - Harbor Tours, Sunset Cruises and Private Charters from Newport Harbor, Rhode Island. Cruise in Comfort Aboard M/V Gansett and enjoy a 90 minute narrated harbor tour with a complimentary Rhode Island taste treat. On your Gansett cruise you'll break away from the typical rushed harbor tour to offer a quiet, relaxing and delightful historic cruise through Newport Harbor and Narragansett Bay's East Passage on our comfortably cushioned and sun-shaded deck, or our top 'sunny side' deck. Our guides are enthused to share the legends and rich history of the famous "city by the sea" - home of the legendary America's Cup 12 meter boats and gilded-age mansions.

My friend and I took the 2:30 cruise in August. Weather was perfect as was the narrator. He was friendly and very knowledgeable. The crew was attentive and courteous. Dell's Lemonade was an added treat. Altogether, a perfect day. Will definitely for a return trip.

I would echo the sentiments of other reviewers . The cruise was a great way to see Newport Bay and get additional information about the history of Newport and its surroundings. the staff were friendly and personable. The fact that the boat offers cover from the hot sun is not to be minimized since you are out on the water for a couple of hours. It was well worth the price

This cruise was really an enjoyable way to see Newport Bay up close. The narrator was so friendly and made it a point to get to know everyone on the boat which gave it a nice personable touch. Our dog "Rosie" was more than welcome and was popular with our fellow passengers. We were treated to Rhode Island "stuffies"" and champagne during the trip. Because this was a motorized boat we were able to get much closer to certain attractions than the sailing cruise we took earlier in the week. I was able to capture some great pictures and the weather was perfect which added to a fantastic evening. Definitely put this trip on your to do list when you visit Newport!!

Touted as one of the better harbor tour companies and it lived up to its reputation! The cruise offers a cash bar with drinks from local breweries and wineries. The captain was great about getting us up close and personal with the sights as well as this one breathtaking schooner cruising the harbor...I got some great pictures!

We really enjoyed our time w/ Gansett Cruises. We took the 2:30 cruise and the weather was perfect! The crew aboard the boat was top notch, taking time to ask us where we were from and getting to know each of us personally... Paul was our narrator and did a top notch job of giving us information about the homes along the shore and the boats in the water together with mixing in some nautical lore. We took the seats in the bow of the boat, we would pick those again. Great views and some sea spray mixed in!! Very nice time for our family, will recommend to friends!!
