We loved this cruise. We had a great time on the boat, slowly touring the harbor and looking at Newport from the water. Best part are the beverages, and they let our dog come on board. Such a fun afternoon!!!

Best parking is at the visitors center - then a ten minute walk to the Gansett at the end of Bowens wharf. Hope to see you soon.
