Jamestown Newport Ferry
Every year come springtime, Jamestown Newport Ferry's vessels wake from their winter slumbers to tote passengers around lower Narragansett Bay and Newport Harbor. Since 1974—when boats finally replaced motorized sea turtles as the main form of water transportation––the service has made summer travels a cinch with one-way and round-trip ferry rides to the region's scenic shores. Passengers enjoy unlimited hop-on, hop-off capabilities that allow them to sightsee, join historical tours, visit museums, and savor new dining experiences. Jamestown Newport Ferry rents out its ships, Jamestown and Katherine, for special events, too, including birthdays, weddings, and company outings.
