Newport Harbor Sunset Cruise
Discover Rhode Island’s beautiful coastline on this 90-minute sunset cruise through Newport Harbor and Narragansett Bay. Climb aboard the 50-foot restored lobster boat and listen to the guides share stories and history about the area. Sample some of the state’s cuisine—a quahog “stuffie—and a champagne toast as you watch the sun dip below the horizon.
What to Expect
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.
