$26 for a 90-Minute Harbor Cruise for Two ($52 Value)

Cruises run from June 7 through late October, departing from Bowen's Wharf at 10:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m., 4:30 p.m., and 6:30 p.m. Children aged 4 and younger may board for free.

During casual 90-minute cruises, the M/V Gansett totes up to 49 passengers around Newport Harbor and Narragansett Bay. Cushioned, shaded seating and a rooftop sun deck are among the boat's modern amenities, and on every voyage, guests enjoy a complimentary treat reflective of Rhode Island cuisine, such as coffee cabinet shakes, Warwick's ice cream, morning mimosas, or a sunset champagne toast. Tour guides, many of whom grew up in the area, share history and facts throughout the cruise. Well-behaved dogs are allowed on board as long as they're on a leash and willing to switch their cell phones to vibrate. A cash bar also offers water, beer, and soft drinks.

Gansett Cruises

From spring through autumn, morning through nightfall, the M/V Gansett can be spotted skimming gracefully atop the tides of Newport Harbor and Narragansett Bay's east passage. Built in 1969 as a passenger vessel and later altered into a working lobster boat, it was completely restored with modern amenities before returning to the water in June of 2007. Today, passengers climb aboard to absorb historic sights of Jamestown and Newport during relaxing, 90-minute trips, which were named the Best Harbor Tours in Newport by Yankee Magazine in 2013. Knowledgeable guides share facts throughout every cruise, and complimentary Rhode Island-inspired eats served straight from the galley let guests discover the flavor of the Ocean State without having to plunge a straw into local penny fountains.

Customer Reviews

I couldn't use this groupon myself but passed it on to a friend that had gone on this cruise before and enjoyed it. I hope to make the cruise next year.

There were four in our party and we all had a wonderful time. John did a great job as tour guide. It was nice to "see" the other side of Newport like the backyards of the rich and famous and all their water "toys." John knew so much about the area and the history behind every building and boat that we passed. Now that USA has won the America Cup it would be fun to view the 12 meter boats that sailed in the 60's and 70's that are in Newport harbor. Makes the "Oracle" look futuristic!!! Fair winds.
