    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Gansett Cruises, 2 Bowens Lndg Bowens Wharf, Newport, RI 02840-3000

    Break away from the typical harbor boat tour and take a quiet, relaxing, and delightful cruise of Newport Harbor and Narragansett Bay's East Passage aboard a traditionally restored 50-foot lobster boat. Watch the sun set in a comfortably cushioned and shaded deck, or from the top 'sunny side' deck. The guides, many of whom grew up on these waters, are enthused to share the legends and rich history of their home port.

    On every cruise, there's something special and complimentary from the galley that is representative of Rhode Island cuisine and culture. Guests on board discover the true flavor of The Ocean State, all compliments of the Captain. Sunset cruisers will enjoy a quahog "stuffie" and champagne to toast their relaxing evening on the water. The cash bar on board serves a selection of Narragansett Beer, Newport Vineyard white wines, and other Rhode Island signature drinks.

    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Pass By: Claiborne Pell Newport Bridge, Ri-138, Jamestown, RI

    See breathtaking views of the Newport Bridge during sunset.

    My husband and I enjoyed the tour very much. The tour guide and crew were exceptional and professional. Oh well, not their fault that it was foggy, cold and overcast. The tour guide was not only knowledgeable of the Newport sights and history, but he made us laugh. The

    We went on the cruise as part of our mini moon. It was wonderful to see RI from the different view points on the cruise. John was a great tour guide. He knew so much information about RI, and he has a great sense of humor. The 'stuffies' are delicious!

    A perfect way to spend a couple of hours lazily bobbing around the harbour and watching the incredible sunset. Can't recommend this trip enough.

    I think the boat ride was really fun and the tour guide really explains the history of newport to you. You have spectacular view on many mansions and other fun houses. However, I just wish the volume of the microphone was higher because it was often hard to hear him.
