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.
